We offer our script notes before Vinnie fires the director!
In case you haven’t heard, Vince McMahon is getting his own movie. It was recently announced that WWE Studios and TriStar are teaming up on Pandemonium, a movie project on the life of WWE honcho, Vincent Kennedy McMahon. The charismatic and controversial showman certainly has a rich and wild history perfect to craft a script around.
Is this something wrestling fans have been clamoring for? Not necessarily. Now don’t get me wrong, telling the story of WWE through Vince’s journey of building it into a global juggernaut certainly has appeal. I just wouldn’t drop $17 to go see it in a theater. If the movie pops up on Netflix, Hulu or the WWE Network then yeah, I’ll give it a watch. The project also has McMahon’s approval and involvement, which means the story will be drastically skewed, painting him in good light, free of any of the blood and nastiness he’s gotten on his hands on the way to the top.
Before this movie becomes a Redbox special or a Walmart bin bargain, I’ve compiled a list of key events in McMahon’s life that fans would love to see find their way into the film.
