- You can watch a special look at the upcoming ESPN "30 for 30" documentary on WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, that is scheduled to be released early next year, at Sports Illustrated by clicking here. Rory Karpf, who directed the feature, noted that the special includes interviews with Ric Flair's first wife, Leslie, as well as an out of character interview with The Undertaker.
"It was great to hear from Ric's family, mainly his three children, to get an entirely different side of Ric beyond the 'Nature Boy' persona," Karpf told SI
. "Ric's first wife Leslie was interviewed and to my knowledge this is the first time she ever granted an interview on camera. She was able to provide a great deal of insight into Ric's college years and who he was before he was the 'Nature Boy.' I think Shawn Michaels
and Triple H
provided the best insight on Ric in and out of the ring. They seem to know him better than anyone and were very forthcoming. It was also awesome to get an interview with The Undertaker
(real name: Mark Calaway) out of character."
- Just a reminder that tonight's WWE SmackDown tapings will also feature a special NXT taping. It is the first time that WWE has taped NXT at a RAW or SmackDown taping. Triple H posted the tweet below, noting that tickets are still available for tonight:
