Sports/Relationships: Pro Wrestling Icon Ric Flair Marries Longtime Fiancee (Video)

My brother BoneBreaker Jones told me, but I had to see it for myself. Wow.

Congrats to The Nature Boy, walking that aisle again. Looks really happy. All the best to the newlyweds from a lifelong fan of ‘The Man.’

Ric Flair is now a MARRIED jet-flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ ‘n’ dealin’ son of a gun!!!!!

Wait… Can you guess what music he chose to ‘walk that aisle’ to? Hit the jump.

Two Wrestlers Speak On ‘Life After Sumo’ (Documentary)

The glamor and prestige of being on top of the sumo game in the Land Of The Rising Sun… if you can get to the top. And even if you do, being ‘about that life’ comes at a price. Watch VICE SPORTS tally up the bill in this documentary episode.

Sumo wrestlers enter training stables, or beyas, as young teens and dedicate their lives to the sport until they retire. Training involves incredible food intake, heavy beer consumption as a means of weight gain and daily full-contact sparring. Along with the health impacts, most wrestlers leave the sport with little education and less money. In this VICE Sports exclusive, we visit with two retired rikishis to get their take on life after sumo.

Wrestlemania? Nah, The Big Event Is The “Andre The Giant” Documentary Coming To HBO (Trailer)

Man. This film looks like it gets real, real fast. Sports entertainment storylines usually tend toward larger-than-life facade… “Andre The Giant” has the larger than life part down pat. But this doc looks to take viewers beyond the facade. Got mixed feelings about that. But feeling compelled to watch nonetheless.

Andre the Giant was literally the biggest celebrity in the world. HBO Sports, WWE, and the Bill Simmons Media Group present Andre The Giant, a documentary examining the life and career of one of the most beloved figures in wrestling history. Andre The Giant premieres April 10 on HBO.

Regular People Wrestle Sumo Champions (Video)

Bwaaahahaaaa! Some of these folks really went at it with the Sumos. Well, if you gone do it… For though, I like the way that the pros in this segment are not that brash, and willing to share in their sport. One even took a ‘L’ and not so much as a frown. We could learn a thing or three in The States from them.

Ricky Velez Confronts Racism… In The Ring! (Video)

Wow! It’s been forever and a day since we’ve seen WWF’s WWE’s Virgil, muscle and manservant to The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase. Whoa wait-a-minute. Manservant? Isn’t that pretty much another term for slave? To get the answer, The Nightly Show correspondent Ricky Velez goes to the former WWE wrestler and former ECW wrestler Tommy Dreamer for some real answers…and some real training…enough to fake it and make it in an actual match…and dares to expose the truth about racism in professional wrestling. Oh, and the answer to that ‘manservant’ question? That’d be a ‘YES.’

“Wrestling is racist as f#ck, Larry.”
Ricky Velez

Let’s start there.

And watch the two-part story, starting with part 1 above, for the whole story, exciting ‘finish’ (part 2 and bonus clip, after the jump) and discussion with host Larry Wilmore.
