Vince McMahon 'Nine Lives' Vice documentary gets premiere date

The two-hour look at the former WWE chairman will bow in mid-October.

A two-hour documentary from Vice on former WWE chairman & CEO Vince McMahon will debut later this month.

In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that "The Nine Lives of Vince McMahon" will air on Tuesday, October 18th at 8 PM Eastern as the lead-in for that night's AWA-focused edition of Tales of the Territories.

Both Meltzer and our Bryan Alvarez were interviewed for the documentary.

Following an investigation in the wake of the Wall Street Journal-reported scandal involving millions in hush money, McMahon resigned from WWE, claiming publicly that he retired. He has been spotted just once in public since then, celebrating his birthday in New York City with John Cena, Cena's wife, and an unidentified woman.

HBO's Real Sports is also working on a McMahon piece for a future episode and Netflix's docuseries about McMahon is also still in process. However, since the Netflix project is a co-produced project with WWE that was announced prior to the scandal, it's unclear what the creative approach will be.

An unauthorized book on McMahon is also scheduled to be released this spring.
