News On ESPN's Ric Flair Special And What It Will Cover, WrestleMania Announcement Coming?

- Regarding the "30 For 30" special that Ric Flair has been filming, Vince McMahon reportedly signed off on allowing ESPN to use their archival footage for the special. Flair spent four hours being interviewed earlier this month and they were filming backstage at WWE Survivor Series in Atlanta.

The piece will reportedly cover Flair's entire career, his personal life, financial issues, Reid Flair's death, the 1975 plane crash and more. There will be a focus on the 1980s when he was at the peak of his career as NWA World Heavyweight Champion with the Four Horsemen.

- As noted, the December 21st WWE RAW will feature the 2015 Slammy Awards from Minneapolis as a part of WWE Week on the USA Network. This RAW could be a big show for another reason as it's believed they will announce Minneapolis hosting WrestleMania 33 in 2017. No word yet if local star Brock Lesnar will be appearing but it makes sense for him to show up for the Royal Rumble build, and to help hype the WrestleMania announcement.
