Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Flair shared his thoughts on how the documentary turned out. He stated that it was very fair, and he thought it turned out well. Flair took issue with what Eric Bischoff said about him and also noted that Bruce Prichard incorrectly said he came to WWF to be the top star in the 1990s. Instead, Flair explained that he simply wanted to get out of WCW. The WWE Hall of Famer also made it clear that he appreciated seeing so many people say kind things about him.

"I thought it was very fair, very good. I thought, once again with the exception of Bischoff, I was thrilled at what some of the people had to say. I just want to start it off by saying that the only mistake that Bruce said, and Bruce and I are very close friend, is I didn’t anticipate being the biggest star up there. That’s the only thing Bruce said wrong because I was never a big star up there. I was a bigger star probably the second time I went back, at 52 years of age, than I was even then because people didn’t know who I was. I just wasn’t on their TV. So I thought Bruce was spot-on, thought he was great. I’m just overwhelmed with what Austin said, ‘Taker. Those are my friends, you know. To have that many celebrities, I’m close with Stephen A, I guess I just look at it and say, ‘These are all my friends. How lucky am I?’ I’ll see Bruce in a couple days. I think the world of Bruce. The only thing he said is wrong is I didn’t go up there thinking I’d be the biggest star. I just was glad to get out of WCW. I just wanted to get the hell out of town, and I certainly didn’t think I was going to win the Royal Rumble. That was never even talked about," Flair said.

Flair was also asked to share his thoughts on working with renowned reporter Tom Rinaldi on the documentary. He made it clear that he had a wonderful experience working with everyone who was involved with it. Flair went on to joke that he's glad he lived long enough for the duration of the production process so that he could see how the documentary turned out.

“I can’t put it into words. Between him and all the people that were involved in the filming, it was a wonderful experience. It’s funny, you put all this together, and you wait, and a guy like me, because I’ve had health issues, I go, ‘I hope I live long enough to see this damn thing.’ [laughs] But now it’s come and it’s gone, and it’s behind us. I’m really happy with it, and I’m not mad at Bruce for one second. Bruce was accurate, but the one thing he said wrong was I did not think I was gonna be the biggest star up there. I just wanted to get the hell out of dodge," Flair said.
