– WWE posted this video of Big Cass singing girlfriend Carmella’s theme song at the WrestleMania 33 ticket party in Orlando:
– Sports Illustrated has a look at the “30 For 30” documentary on WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair that comes out next year, calling it the “most anticipated sports documentary of 2017.” Titled “Nature Boy,” the doc is directed by Rory Karpf and could premiere as early as the spring or summer. It’s expected to run 90 minutes with commercials.
Kopf told SI that he is still interviewing people for the documentary and has already spoken with all of Flair’s living children including RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, Sting, Triple H, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Ricky Steamboat, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Jim Ross, Eric Bischoff and Flair’s first wife, Leslie, among others. Kopf noted that The Rock is the one interview subject that has eluded him. He also has a few more shots to film with The Nature Boy himself. Kopf commented and revealed that Taker will be appearing out-of-character for his interview:
“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. 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.”
– Former WWE Champion The Rock recently spoke with the LA Times to promote Disney’s “Moana” at this link. Rock commented on why he spends much of his little downtime on his phone, refreshing his Twitter and Instagram accounts to personally respond to fans and members of the media:
“I’m on everything all day. I’m doing my best. Because here’s the thing. When I was wrestling in flea markets and fairs and used car dealerships in front of 150 people, getting paid $40 a night, I developed a skill to listen. When those 150 people would respond to something, it was like, ‘Let’s go in that direction more.’ I think developing that has helped me.”
