Ric Flair Comments On His 30 For 30 Special

As noted, ESPN is currently working a 30 for 30 special on WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair. According to Flair, ESPN will have a camera crew with him backstage at the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view in Atlanta later this month to film material for the special.



During his podcast (WOOOOO! Nation) with former professional wrestling announcer, Tony Schiavone, Flair further commented on the documentary.

“Well, it’s my whole life. It [has] a little bit to do with my airplane crash, of course, and then coming back from that. And then the titles and the championships and it touches a lot on my personal life, which has been up and down. Right now, it’s perfect, but I had a couple rough years there. And it talks about my son, Reid. [ESPN] wanted to talk about him, how special he was to me. And then, a lot about Ashley, Charlotte, who is now the champion in WWE, the Divas division. And about my other two children, Megan and David. So, it was very nice. And then, it talked about where I am today”.

Flair did explain that it took over a year and a half for WWE to agree that ESPN could use their video footage.

“The WWE is very, very protective of their intellectual property,” Flair claimed. “[The project] is mutually beneficial for all of us, but it just took a while to get everybody on the same page and to work on it diligently for, I guess, it has been a year and a half now. And all of a sudden, it’s coming to fruition.”

“We shot the first six hours, and we’ll shoot another six or seven hours, which [WOOOOO! Nation co-host, Conrad Thompson] will be a part of, at [WWE] Survivor Series. And then, there will be another six-hour shoot. And then, of course, all of the stuff [ESPN] will pull from the library in Stamford, Connecticut with the WWE to put together the whole film. So it’ll be exciting!”
