WWE owner and architect Vince McMahon is set to have a biopic made about him. For those who don’t know Vince McMahon is the owner of the WWE. His father created the company and he took over after his death and has lead the company since through the attitude era with wrestling icons like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, and Stone Cold Steve Austin and to the modern era with people like John Cena and Mike ” The Miz” Mizanin. According to The Sun, “The movie – which looks to have the WWE owner’s blessing – will be directed by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra and released by Sony Pictures… His own studio will be involved and will show his rise up to the top of the wrestling business with the company that is now the biggest promotion in the world… It was chart the early days of his grandfather starting up, his dad’s control and then Vince taking over and turning the company into a global brand. Vince, 71, grew up in a trailer park with his mother in North Carolina and did not have contact with his father until he was 12. McMahon’s influence and the superstar’s he brought through are also expected to be shown in the feature.” Personally this should be a great biopic. Vince McMahon is truly a rags to riches story. And the way he swooped the company from under his father’s nose, a father by the way who wanted nothing to do with him and essentially gave him a job out of pity, will make for almost a Game of Thrones type story. I am really excited for this if its set to happen.
