Trailer Released For Vince McMahon “Nine Lives” Documentary On VICE TV (VIDEO)

Vince McMahon

There’s a new documentary covering the life of Vince McMahon and a new trailer has been released.

A new 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 ET. It was originally scheduled to air in October, but it was pushed back due to a special AEW Dynamite episode that aired on a Tuesday night.

It’s been a tumultuous 2022 for Vince McMahon because he started the year as the man in charge of WWE as the Chairman and CEO as well as as the man in charge of WWE’s creative direction. While Vince remains WWE’s primary stockholder, his July 22nd retirement meant that he was no longer running the day-to-day operations.

After he retired, Vince’s daughter Stephanie McMahon-Levesque took over as the Chairwoman and Co-CEO along with the other Co-CEO Nick Khan, who used to be the WWE President. As for the creative direction, Stephanie’s husband Paul “Triple H” Levesque assumed that role as the Chief Content Officer that was groomed for the position by Vince over the last decade while Triple H was running the NXT brand.

The main reason that the 77-year-old Vince McMahon is no longer running WWE is that the Wall Street Journal released a story about “hush money payments” that Vince paid to a former female employee as well as other women in the company going back nearly 20 years. Due to his age, McMahon was likely going to retire soon anyway, but the black eye that the story put on WWE was a big reason for him stepping down as well.

VICE TV released a trailer for their documentary about McMahon’s life. The trailer features comments from men that worked with Vince like Jim Cornette and Vince Russo while the Wrestling Observer’s Bryan Alvarez was shown making a comment. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer will also be in the documentary along with many others.

The documentary hit on some big moments from Vince’s career including the Montreal Screwjob that led to Bret Hart punching Vince in the locker room, Owen Hart grabbing Vince (because Owen died in 1999 due to a stunt gone wrong) and Vince was shown in a neckbrace from the steroid trial from the early 1990s.

VICE TV called it the “real story behind wrestling’s most provocative figure that you won’t hear anywhere else.”
