Highly-Anticipated Vince McMahon Documentary Draws Surprisingly Low Viewership

Vince McMahon

Vince McMahon isn’t as big of a draw anymore.

The wrestling world was shocked back in July when Vince McMahon stepped down as chairman of WWE.

His departure came in the wake of allegations of hush-money payments and other controversial actions and it led to a major regime change as his work has been taken over by his daughter Stephanie and his son-in-law Triple H.

McMahon survived scandal after scandal over the decades. These include his steroid trial, the Montreal Screwjob, Owen Hart’s death, Chris Benoit’s murder-suicide, countless allegations of pushing the boundaries and getting his programs protested.

This was the mindset behind the documentary’s title, ‘The Nine Lives of Vince McMahon’.

And yet, the show drew very little. According to ShowBuzzDaily, only 95,000 people watched the documentary on VICE TV, earning a 0.04 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

This news comes at a time when McMahon continues to make headlines. He has expressed intent on returning to WWE, claiming that he was given “bad advice” when deciding to step away.

At the same time, there are new allegations being made against McMahon and some people close to Vince personally don’t want him back.
