Isn't Flair and old, decrepit, broke mess now? How was it glorifying anything?

Well without having seen the doc or read the article, it comes down to the age old question: does Scarface glorify drug dealing in spite of Tony Montana's fate? Or are people who watch it just morons?

The doc didn't glorify his behavior at all. Heck, HHH said basically everything Flair says is a lie and he uses him as an example to the newbies as what not to do with yourself outside of the ring.

or it could be the purest distillation of the nihilism at the center of modern capitalism and American urban pop culture. maybe the question is why do so many cultural tastemakers admire and identify with a character that fully exploits capitalism while standing outside of it then dies an early death having reached the pinnacle of having it all? why do so many young kids, especially black and brown kids, expect to die an early death? is their love for the movie a reflection of their own expectation? what does that mean for their choices now? what impact could we have in these communities if we focus on a message that life is worth living. their lives have dignity?

That was tremendous. Meh plus+

Some notes:
- good god that Verne Gagne wrestling camp was ridic, specifically the first part with the stairs.
- Charlotte Flair looked hot as hell in her interviews.
- I admire his ability to drink as much as he did/does.
- how much did they pay Hogan to talk so positively about Flair? Lol, sure Jan.

Finally seen it last week. I en joyed it overall as well. The parts about his rise and the interviews with Sting, Steamboat, Jim Ross, etc were my favorite. Loved seeing some of the archival NWA footage. And yeah, he's lived a pretty miserable existence outside of the ring.

Also saw Catholics vs. Convicts. I remember that game really well and Jimmy Johnson electing to go for 2 at the end. Pretty crazy story about the director's buddy who was behind the t-shirt and his involvement with the ND men's basketball team. Solid rec.
