X-Pac open’s today’s show speaking about Ric Flair’s 30 for 30 documentary. He says he was blown away by the film and the authenticity with which Flair approached the project. He says that the Flair we saw in that film is exactly the way Flair was, and still is in most ways. He says there is no such thing as Richard Fleer, or at least there hasn’t been for an awfully long time.
As a father, this film really hit close to home in a lot of ways for X-Pac. He says becoming a professional wrestler is a very selfish decision, due to the negative effect it has on you wife, your kids, and your family as a whole. He thought the film was ‘heartbreaking’ when it touched on Flair’s children, and it made him think a lot about the effect the business had on his own kids.
Speaking about the upcoming bout between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho at WrestleKingdom, X-Pac says that he’s sure WWE wasn’t thrilled to hear about it and he really doubts Vince McMahon is behind this in any way. Reports of McMahon playing a role in all of this is simply people speculating in X-Pac’s opinion.
X-Pac touches on how tough Vince McMahon is, and recalls the time McMahon crashed his motorcycle. McMahon was apparently thrown 50 feet from his motorcycle when a driver cut in front of him and this resulted in him breaking his pelvis. Most performers safely assumed that McMahon wouldn’t make the next television tapings but they were wrong. McMahon showed up to the tapings and checked his wheelchair at the door because he wouldn’t let anyone see him in a wheelchair.
