WWE’s Vince McMahon docuseries on Netflix is one of the highest-budgeted docs in the history of the streaming platform.
New Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan announced on Thursday (October 29) during WWE’s third-quarter earnings call. According to Khan the deal is “groundbreaking”. “By groundbreaking, I mean one of the highest-budgeted docs in Netflix’s history,” Khan explained.
Bill Simmons who worked on the 2018 “Andre the Giant” documentary on HBO will serve as an executive producer. “Chris Smith, the amazing director of Netflix’s ‘Fyre Festival’ documentary, will direct and produce alongside WWE Studios,” Khan added.
Although no further details were given, one thing is for sure the docuseries will generate interest within the wrestling world and catch the eye of the casual viewer. McMahon’s competition and those who have left his company are expected to watch the series. Whether you like him or not.
Why wouldn’t you? McMahon doesn’t do many interviews and public appearances. Footage outside of the WWE world of the WWE chairman and CEO are rare to find.
Now 75-years-old, McMahon is worth $17 billion and changed professional wrestling forever. Often called a genius, Vince McMahon docuseries on Netflix could potential break all types of records for the streaming platform. Indeed groundbreaking.
