Nature Boy Ric Flair: The Definitive Collection (DVD Review)6 Jul, 2008 By: John Latchem
Flair for the Gold
WWE Films and Genius Products are giving fans a chance to relive the memories of one of the greatest professional wrestlers in history with the newly released Nature Boy Ric Flair: The Definitive Collection.
The $34.95 three-DVD set offers a comprehensive documentary of Flair looking back at his career, punctuated by interviews with his friends and colleagues. Coincidentally, Flair spends a lot of time praising his stints in the WWE while heavily criticizing his time in rival WCW.
The match selection leaves one wondering how the set can be called “definitive,” when many of Flair’s greatest matches, which are available on earlier DVD releases, are not included here. However, the DVD includes his final match, at Wrestlemania XXIV with Shawn Michaels, and his complete farewell speech. His hall-of-fame induction can be found on the Wrestlemania XXIV DVD set.
