Our Editor's Take

What does it feel like to be at the top of the wrestling world? In the To Be The Man podcast, legendary wrestler Ric Flair talks with buddy Conrad Thompson and reveals the secrets of his triumphs and trials. Each episode may fascinate both wrestling fans and newcomers.

To Be The Man podcast host Flair was born in 1949 and grew up in Edina, Minnesota. His adoptive parents supported his passion for wrestling. His fame grew as he won title after title against the biggest names in wrestling. He recovered and returned to the game despite breaking his back at 26 years old. He won his first NWA United States Heavyweight Championship in 1977. By 1978, he'd won five more. People soon knew Flair as the "Nature Boy." The title signifies his distinct technique. After wrestling for more than fifty years, he is still one of the greatest names in the sport. Fellow wrestlers and analysts consider him a legend. He swears he'll never retire.

With such a captivating story, Flair has listeners eager for each new episode. He discusses other wrestling names like Hulk Hogan, Jim Cornette, and Ricky Morton with his cohost. But it's not all positive on the To Be The Man podcast. In “Ric's Sh*t list,” Flair gripes about broadcasters Eric Bischoff and Jim Ross. When not divulging backstage drama, the hosts provide commentary on famous matches. They answer listener questions, too. Questions range from Flair's career and the latest in professional wrestling. The sport has changed over the last half century, and Flair has seen it all. He has many opinions, predictions, and cautionary advice to offer today's youngest pros.

Listeners can send in their queries and hear back from the man himself. To Be The Man unveils the life of wrestling's top champion and offers great insight into the sport today.
