The Ringer’s Bill Simmons speaks about the Vince McMahon documentary.
Netflix is going to be releasing a documentary about WWE Executive Chairman, Vince McMahon. The Ringer’s Bill Simmons is involved with the project and he spoke about it at Bloomberg’s Screentime conference.
Bill thinks it has the chance to be great and the best he’s been involved with. When asked if McMahon will get to see the documentary before its pushed out to the public, he said McMahon will not be able to give notes when it comes to the final cut, but he thinks he’ll be able to see clips.
We have this Vince McMahon documentary we’ve been working on for three years. I think it has the chance to be really great. I really think it has the chance to be the best one I’ve been involved with and I’ll be interested to see what people think about that one because a lot of time and it was one where Netflix still has a final cut of it and it’s a little more old school like what the 30 for 30 model was and I think it has a chance to be really special.
Not the giving notes on the final cut part (Simmons said when asked if McMahon gets to see the documentary before it comes out). I think they get to look at clips.
WWE and UFC merged under the Endeavor umbrella to form a new sports and entertainment company, TKO Group Holdings. The merger was completed on September 12th.
