A new official airdate has been announced for Vice TV’s documentary about former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
It has been reported by Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer that the Vice TV documentary “The Nine Lives of Vince McMahon” will be airing on Tuesday, December 13th with a two-hour run time from 8-10 p.m. The original airdate for the documentary was October 18th, but it was moved because it was going to be head-to-head against WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite. The report notes that Alvarez and the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer were both interviewed for the documentary.
The Vice documentary on McMahon isn’t the only one covering his life because HBO Real Sports is working on a Vince McMahon story as well. There’s also an unauthorized biography book that will be released in spring 2023.
When Vince McMahon retired as the WWE Chairman & CEO on July 22nd it came after there were reports of numerous “hush money” payments to multiple women including a former female employee and multiple women that worked for the company in the 2000s as well as the years that followed.
The report from The Wall Street Journal on July 8th revealed that McMahon “agreed to pay more than $12 million over the past 16 years to suppress allegations of sexual misconduct and infidelity.” Following the news of that report, McMahon appeared on WWE TV multiple times. It was two weeks after that Wall Street Journal report when Vince retired on a Friday afternoon after the stock market closed that day.
After Vince moved on from his WWE duties, his daughter Stephanie became the new Chairwoman along with the role of Co-CEO with Nick Khan, who was the WWE President in the past. In addition to that, Paul “Triple H” Levesque (Vince’s son-in-law) took over as WWE’s Head of Creative on Raw/Smackdown with the new job title of Chief Content Officer.
Since retiring from WWE, McMahon has kept a low profile aside from being spotted at New York City restaurant for his 77th birthday in August along with a November photo when he was out on a date with an unidentified woman.
