And finally, the doc turns to Charlotte aka Ashley Fliehr, who opted to enter the ring in order to honour Reid's dream of having a wrestling career, which was sadly cut short.

Charlotte says, "I know for a fact I wouldn't be where I am today if he hadn't died. I know that sounds really messed up, because that was his dream, not mine, but I made a promise that I'd carry out his dream."

As for what Ric thinks of his daughter's success? "I'm living vicariously through her as we speak right now... The greatest moment of my wrestling career was Ashley winning that title. Nothing in my career ever gave me that feeling. I was so proud of her."

Extra props to the documentary's editors, who brilliantly cut between Ric, Reid and Charlotte all pulling off their own Figure-Four and Figure-Eight Leglocks in the show's closing moments.
