Ric Flair is being optimistic about a WWE-produced documentary about him and thinks it will be released in late 2022.
WWE and Ric Flair were working on said documentary until Flair’s departure in 2021. But despite that departure, Flair believes the documentary will still be released. He also believes that it will be “better” than the ESPN-produced 30 for 30 documentary released in 2017.
Speaking on his To Be The Man Podcast, Flair thinks this new documentary will surpass the 2017 one because this one won’t be edited:
“This will be better than my 30 for 30 on ESPN because I made them promise me that whatever I said, they wouldn’t edit. I’m not going to do something that’s going to be edited again. I was passionate and I expressed everything that I thought was good or bad in my life. I discussed my personal life, my personal problems, family problems, wrestling problems, issues with people that I have had. I just answered questions and I answered them as truthfully as I could.”
Despite Flair’s optimism, he currently finds himself in an odd place when it comes to his relationship with WWE. His departure stemmed from his frustration over his trademark ‘WOOO’ being removed from WWE’s opening signature sequence following the ‘Plane Ride From Hell’ episode of Dark Side of the Ring where he was accused of sexual misconduct.
Ric Flair has claimed to be open to repairing his working relationship with WWE when Vince McMahon was in charge but stated he’d never work for Nick Khan, who is still a key player in WWE even after Triple H assumed control over WWE’s creative direction.
