Can’t hold these commentators down: ESPN salutes Ric Flair before #30for30 tonight

In honor of ESPN Films’ latest 30 for 30, “Nature Boy,” some ESPN personalities performed their best Ric Flair impressions, including a few of his most famous lines and his signature “Woooo!”

“Nature Boy” airs at 10 p.m. ET tonight on ESPN.

Joining the fun on the video are SportsCenter anchors Elle Duncan, Jay Harris and Lisa Kerney, college basketball analyst Sean Farnham, SportsCenter reporter Marty Smith and SEC Network college football analyst Marcus Spears, who even donned a blond wig.

In the film, director Rory Karpf (“I Hate Christian Laettner,” “The Book of Manning”) takes an inside look at Flair’s story, including his triumphs, his tragedies, and his pivotal role in turning pro wrestling into mainstream sports entertainment.

Jon McLeod, Andy Hall and Amanda Brooks produced the video above.
