WWE chief Vince McMahon thought 'nobody is interested in me' ahead of Netflix series into 'amazing' story, says Triple H

WWE chief Vince McMahon thought 'nobody is interested in me' before the Netflix series about his life was commissioned.

Triple H revealed the billionaire wrestling boss had doubts but reassured fans McMahon's life has actually been 'amazing'.

WWE president Nick Khan announced a 'groundbreaking' deal had been reached for the high budget docuseries in October.

It will be directed by Chris Smith, who also produced the hit music festival documentary Fyre Fest.

The release date is yet to be announced but 75-year-old McMahon was not sure about the idea at first.

Triple H told Fightful: "Prior to now, Vince was always hesitant to do it.

"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 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."

The WWE CEO is worth around a staggering £1billion after taking over the company from his father in 1982.

McMahon went from filing for bankruptcy in 1976 to becoming a real-life billionaire in the 90s, owning a limousine, private jet, yacht and a £160,000 Bentley.

His Connecticut mansion is worth an eye-watering £32m.

Despite his huge personal wealth, McMahon failed to make Forbes' Top 400 list after WWE's coronavirus struggles.
