In a long-anticipated development, the highly-awaited docuseries delving into the life and career of Vince McMahon, the mastermind behind WWE, is set to make its debut later this year. After years of meticulous development, the collaboration between WWE and Netflix promises an unprecedented glimpse into the fascinating journey of one of the most influential figures in the world of professional wrestling.

WWE’s Netflix Venture

The venture was first unveiled during WWE’s third-quarter 2020 financials call when it was revealed that WWE had joined forces with Netflix to bring Vince McMahon’s story to the streaming giant. Notably, the series boasts Bill Simmons as its executive producer, a sports and media personality renowned for his work across various platforms. Adding to the creative prowess is Chris Smith, acclaimed for directing “Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened”, who has been named as the director of this ambitious project.

Unveiling the Grandeur

WWE, never one to shy away from grandeur, proudly announced that this docuseries would be the highest-budgeted in Netflix’s history. The collaboration hinted at a production of unparalleled scale, aiming to provide fans with an in-depth and intimate look at the man behind the global wrestling phenomenon.

Vince McMahon’s Limited Involvement

Bill Simmons, in confirming the project details, emphasized an intriguing aspect of the production. While Vince McMahon would be able to review selected clips, he would not have the opportunity to provide feedback before the final cut of the docuseries. This approach adds an element of authenticity and impartiality to the storytelling, ensuring that viewers get an unfiltered perspective on McMahon’s life and career.

A Sooner-than-Expected Premiere

Excitement reached new heights when Dave Meltzer shared insights during a recent Wrestling Observer Radio episode. Meltzer, who himself was interviewed for the docuseries, hinted that the much-anticipated project is closer to release than many might think. The revelation has sparked heightened anticipation among fans, who are eager to witness the untold chapters of Vince McMahon’s remarkable journey.

Here’s what Meltzer said:

“Yeah, today I went to Los Angeles to do a Netflix taping (about) Vince McMahon. So I guess what I can say, since I’m not supposed to say much about it, is that the Netflix series is going to be out sooner than you think. Okay, I guess that’s the best way to put it.

I’ll know the date. I mean, I’ll be able to release the date pretty soon, and it’s soon. It’s a big freaking deal. And they’ve interviewed all kinds of people. And, I was told the most interesting person they’ve interviewed is Vince McMahon.

I’ve done multiple tapings for this. This one was more to catch up on everything that’s happened since the last taping, which they thought, you know, I mean, the series, I guess when it started and how it’s ended is completely different because when it started, it was just, Vince McMahon, the owner of the company. And now he’s not the owner of the company; and there are all of the reasons that he’s not the owner of the company.

And there’s the payoffs and all that stuff, all that happened, well, they were years into this thing, into this documentary before all that stuff happened; and then they kind of had to redo everything, or refocus on all kinds of new stuff.”
