One of the most iconic personas in WWE history, Vince McMahon, is coming to Netflix. The story of the WWE CEO and Vice-Chairman will be broadcasted all over the world. To you, he might be the recipient of many suplexes, DDTs, and special moves, but fans will enjoy his intense journey into achieving his dreams.
He was insane both on and off the ring and luckily, you’ll be enjoying that same insanity on the streaming giant. Netflix will be bringing a multi-part episodic bibliographic series on the man himself, Vince McMahon. He’s been a part of some of the greatest fights and altercations in WWE history––it’s about time we all relive those distant memories.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE has made the announcement in an official meeting with investors following their 3rd quarter earnings on Wednesday.
The team spearheading the documentary series will be WWE themselves alongside Bill Simmons who’s known for his work on HBO’s 2018 documentary titled Andre the Giant––one of the most prolific wrestlers in the world. As for the project’s director, Chris Smith will be manning the position. Smith has directed the streaming giant’s Fyre Festival documentary.

For two decades, McMahon has been a presence in the WWE. He’s very well-known for his altercations against The Rock, Triple H, and Shawn Michaels––but none greater than Stone Cold Steve Austin in the 90s. That was what all the fans were looking forward to may it be in their televisions or inside the arena.

The documentary will also feature his rags-to-riches story. As a background, he grew up in a North Carolinian trailer home with an abusive father. Today, however, speaks volumes on his character––amassing over $1 billion in his bank account.
If you knew the WWE, nothing excited you more than the biggest stars. However, seeing the CEO come out of his office and get into the ring brings a certain type of tension while you’re watching.
