The Iron Claw dropped in theaters on December 22nd, and fans are coming back with their own reviews. It appears that despite some memorable performances, one is really stealing the show for the wrong reason.
Ric Flair appears in the new Iron Claw movie, but it’s not the real Nature Boy. Instead, Aaron Dean Eisenberg played the role, but fans aren’t loving what he did with the character.
Ric Flair appears in one scene in The Iron Claw, and he is cutting a promo. Needless to say, that fans did not appreciate what Aaron Dean Eisenberg brought to the part.
Pro wrestling fans started dragging Aaron Dean Eisenberg’s performance of Ric Flair, and plenty joined in on that as well. A bootleg video from one of The Iron Claw screenings has now gone viral, and many fans are commenting on that as well.
AEW star Trend saw a ton of trolling tweets at Aaron Dean Eisenberg, and he had to comment. The Best Friends member said, “don’t forget to publicly bully the guy who played Ric Flair on Christmas.”
Don Callis also commented on the clip, writing, “Wow. Brutal. He couldn’t even get the walk right. Literally Will Ferrell doing Ashley Schaefer is far superior.”
Pro wrestling fans can be brutal, and that is not a surprise. When you’re taking on a role like Ric Flair, one has to expect a certain amount of expectation. Now, it appears that we know exactly how the pro wrestling community treats a performance like this that they don’t see as up to par.
