All together now, pro wrestling fans — woooooo!

The reason for the elation is just before the weekend it was announced that wrestling icon Ric Flair would be getting the award-winning ESPN 30 for 30 documentary treatment.

"We named this company Legacy Talent because it's our mission to help preserve the legacies that our clients have worked a lifetime to build. Yesterday we took a huge step in documenting Ric Flair's legacy by starting to shoot his 30 for 30 ESPN Film," Legacy Talent and Entertainment, which represents Flair, announced on its Facebook page Friday, Oct. 30. "We are honored to work with such a prestigious group on a project we are so passionate about! #Flair30for30 #ComingSoon."

The talent agency accompanied the announcement with photos of Flair himself shooting for the documentary, which will tell the story about his legendary career and life.

If there's one pro wrestler that deserves the 30 for 30 treatment, it's "The Nature Boy." With a historic career that spans over 40 years, ranging from the NWA, WCW and WWE — with a stint in TNA as well — the stylin', profiling, limousine-riding, jet-flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun had such an impact on the squared circle that he was enshrined in the WWE Hall of Fame twice: as an individual and as a member of The Four Horsemen.

Outside the ring, Flair's overall swagger with shiny robes, boas and legendary trash talk crossed over to pop audiences — almost on a level bigger than pro wrestling itself. This 30 for 30 film on him should be excellent.
