Ric Flair Documentary planned for Wrestle Mania


WWE rumors continue to swirl regarding ESPN’s collaboration with the company to release a documentary on wrestling legend Ric Flair. The trailer featuring the former 16-time World Champion as the star of a new 30 for 30 segment for the network was leaked online this week, and it has a number of fans yelling “Whoooooooo” with pure excitement.

Now, according to Cageside Seats, WWE and ESPN are expected to release the 90-minute, highly anticipated Flair doc during the most exciting time of the year for wrestling fans, which is, of course, WrestleMania week.

The choice to release Ric’s 30 for 30 at a time of the year when the intrigue surrounding WWE and its on-air storylines is at an all-time high is no coincidence. WWE actually has a long history of saving some of its more compelling ideas for the late March / early April period leading up to its annual biggest show of the year.

If nothing else, it has already been confirmed that the WWE will once again offer special fan “Axxess” events for four days leading up to the big event. The WWE events will include the annual WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony on Friday of WrestleMania weekend and a special NXT: Takeover show on Saturday that will be headlined by former TNA star Bobby Roode challenging Shinsuke Nakamura for the NXT Heavyweight Title belt.

All of these WWE events, of course, will culminate with WrestleMania 33, which is set to take place on April 2, 2017, live at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
