WWE News: Finn Balor Network special, Matt Osborne family lawsuit, RAW main event

- WWE Network will be airing a 30 minute Finn Balor special, likely built around the clips from the last few weeks of NXT profiles on him, this Thursday at 10:30 p.m. EEST. The show will build this Saturday morning's special from Sumo Hall, the same show with Balor battling NXT champion Kevin Owens.

- The latest lawsuit against WWE litigated by attorney Konstantine Kyros was filed earlier Friday in federal court in Dallas by the family of the late Matt Osborne, best known as Maniac Matt Borne, and the original Doink the Clown. The lawsuit, similar to ones filed by Billy Jack Haynes, Vito LoGrasso, Ryan Sakoda and the wife of the late Nelson Frazier, alleged that Osborne suffered concussions in wrestling that led to depression and drug abuse which led to his 2013 death.

Jerry McDevitt spoke to the Dallas Morning News, noting the similarty to the other suits and saying they have no merit, claiming attorneys are finding destitute pro wrestlers and telling them there's money to be made. The suit was filed by Michelle James, the mother of Osborne's two children.

- WWE has announced the main event for Raw on Monday from Washington, DC, as Seth Rollins & Kane vs. Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose.
