We don’t have to wait to hear more about Vice’s documentary about the life and times of Vincent McMahon, who was a former WWE President, CEO and Head of Creative Division.
Vince McMahon is a controversial and polarizing figure who has reacted in many ways to the wrestling world for decades.
Vice first revealed its documentary last week about the longtime WWE boss. Now we have a date and a title.
According to the Wrestling Observer newspaper, The Nine Lives of Vince McMahon will be released on October 18 at 8 p.m. This would mean that the upcoming vice documentary will air alongside the Halloween Havoc edition of WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite, which will be holding a special edition on Tuesday the same day. There will be a sequel to Tales of the Territories, the new vice-written wrestling documentary series that night.
What makes The Nine Lives of Vince McMahon particularly interesting is that it won’t bring WWE. This allows former journalistic and creative leaders to examine incidents that WWE would like to keep private. Some reports claim he will cover the elder McMahon’s recent resignation and the events leading up to the resignation.
He was accused of sending wrestlers on steroids in the 90s, but thought nothing of it.
A young man would like to watch the film about vice out of curiosity to learn a little more about McMahon.
Two other documentaries about the CEO of Alpha Entertainment are currently in limbo. The first series, which is a four-part docuseries from Netflix, has been pulled from the streaming company’s schedule. The filmmaker is working with WWE to complete this project. The other is the limited series dramatization which will no longer see the light of day, following Mr. Mahon’s resignation from WWE.
I want to add that McMahon resigned from WWE in July.
