X-Pac opens this week’s podcast by welcoming Rory Karpf to the show. Karpf directed the recent Ric Flair 30 for 30 documentary.
Karpf says he had a terrific time working on that documentary, and X-Pac informs that he absolutely loved the movie, even though some of the content was difficult to watch. The portion that focused on Ric’s late son, Reid was particularly difficult for X-Pac and he admits to shedding a few tears during that portion of the film.
X-Pac points out that wrestlers lead a strange life in the sense that they’re away from their families most of the year, and while they’re out living it up on the road, their families are living life day-to-day without them. He admits that he can identify with Ric in the sense that he wanted to be there more for his children, and that’s why this portion of the film really touched him.
Karpf thinks the most surprising thing that was said in the movie was Flair’s claim that he slept with 10,000 women. He informs that Flair called him a few days later, claiming that he did the math and admitting that he may have exaggerated that number. Flair said that 8,000 women was probably a more accurate number. Karpf laughed and told Flair that it was no big deal.
