Posted on 4/30/124 by Colin Vassallo



Deadline.com is reporting in an exclusive story that Dwayne
“The Rock” Johnson is serving as an executive producer on
the new docuseries for Vice TV titled Who Killed WCW?

The series will make it’s Vice TV premiere on June 4 and
“will explore the complex factors that led to the
promotion’s downfall, including management challenges,
creative decisions, and the intense competition during the
infamous Monday Night Wars.”

It will include exclusive, in-depth interviews with
wrestlers, executives, and insiders who for the first time
will tell their personal stories and problems faced while
working for WCW.

“The iconic rise and fall of WCW is one of professional
wrestling’s most captivating stories – full of big dreams,
massive successes, painful failures, and the harsh realities
of the pro wrestling business,” Johnson said. “With
wrestling viewership and fan engagement at an ultimate high,
there has never been a more perfect time to tell top-quality
wrestling stories, and there’s no better one to start with
than a one-of-a-kind, behind-the-scenes look at this epic
saga, known as The Rise and Fall of WCW and personally, the
rise of WCW, not the fall, inspired me greatly early in my
career where I would eventually become, the Final Boss.”
