    I was upset as a fan how HHH seemed to belittle ric flair and make it look like he was his saviour. His attitude towards reid flairs death made me a little sick as well. Another thing that i didnt like was Hulk Hogans opinion on Ric flair when in reality Hogan has had quite a fall from grace as well. HHH maybe might want to consider that he was never ring royalty at all and that he wasnt even third best in the attitude era.

      I didn’t think Hogan was capable of that kind of humility. To admit that he couldn’t actually wrestle — something that any fan over the age of 12 knew anyway — in this documentary that is going to be seen by so many non-wrestling fans was pretty impressive, IMO.
      As for HHH, I think both he and HBK have stopped enabling Flair and have started giving it to him straight. That’s the difference between real respect and being a sycophant.

        I agree with you in that manner but remember when HHH was in WCW, he wasnt even a blip on the radar, and flair was already a an established legend. He had the nerve to judge flair so harshly about his son kind of surprised me. I think he cares for flair bit it just shocked at his rhetoric concerning the death of flairs son. It almost came out in a hypocritical manner and i dont remember where i came from manner.
