Vince McMahon was on top of WWE until a hush money scandal toppled the seasoned pro wrestling promoter. Now, McMahon is enjoying his retirement, but that doesn’t mean his story is finished being told.

Netflix was working on a documentary series about Mr. McMahon. This was in conjunction with WWE, and fans wondered what they will include, or leave out, of the series. Then a truckload of controversy was dumped on McMahon’s lap, and he was forced to retire.

It was previously noted that the Netflix documentary series is off, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that the documentary series is still in the pipeline, despite all the controversy Vince McMahon drummed up in the past couple of months.

While the story going around was that the Vince McMahon scandal let to the cancellation of the Netflix series on the life of McMahon, that is not the case. They are doing a McMahon project currently with cooperation from WWE, Chris Smith is the Director and Executive Producer. This is one of at least two major documentaries on the life of McMahon in production right now and there is also the Vince McMahon book coming out next year

We’ll have to see how the recent developments in Vince McMahon’s life might change his upcoming documentary series. It seems that WWE is still involved, so odds are they will protect him to the best of their ability, but at this point, it might be really hard to do that.
