Triple H: Vince McMahon Thinks People Aren't Interested In a Documentary About Him
The WWE Chairman doesn't believe he's interesting enough
Triple H has revealed that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was initially hesitant to agree to a Netflix documentary about him - because he did not think he was interesting enough.
It was confirmed in October that Netflix will be releasing a multi-part documentary series about McMahon in the future, and are co-producing the endeavour with WWE Studios.
The docu-series will allegedly have one of the biggest production budgets in Netflix history but McMahon himself wasn't always sure about being the centre-piece of such a show, according to his son-in-law Triple H.
The King Of Kings says that McMahon always believed that fans would prefer to know more about the superstars and WWE talent than himself.
Speaking on The Roz & Mocha Show, Triple H said: "Prior to now, Vince was always hesitant to do it. With Vince, he really doesn’t see himself — while Mr. McMahon is one of the most epic characters ever, he doesn’t see himself as part of the programming. When you ask him about those things, he goes, ‘Nobody is interested in me. They want to know about the stars and performers.'
"The truth is, they do (want to know about Vince). The most difficult thing with Vince’s life is making it succinct. Every chapter of his life is a whole other unbelievable story. His story is amazing, all the things he’s been through, the trials and tribulations of getting to where he is. No one gives him the credit, they just see this billion-dollar global empire he’s created and see him as the evil tyrant businessman."
Bill Simmons, who worked on HBO's Andre the Giant documentary, is an executive producer on the Vince McMahon project, while Fyre Fest documentary director Chris Smith is also working as a producer.
