Imagine the stories. There is no more influential person in the history of professional wrestling than Vince McMahon. He revolutionized the wrestling industry and has never really looked back, though not without some controversy along the way. The stories and rumors about McMahon are the stuff of legends and now we might be able to get even more information than ever before.
Part of the problem with trying to find out anything about a wrestling figure is the sheer amount of information out there. Almost everyone has had something to say about McMahon (or just about anything) over several decades. At some point the only solution is to put everything together in one place, and that might be what we are seeing in just a few years.
Author Abraham Riesman has announced that he will be releasing a biography of Vince McMahon in the future. The exact date is not known at the moment, though Riesman thinks it will be sometime in 2022. The book will be called Ringmaster and will be published by Atria Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuester. Riesman has also written a book about Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee.

I come bearing good news: I’m writing another book! This one’s a biography of Vince McMahon, the emperor of professional wrestling. It’s for @simonandschuster’s @atriabooks imprint. Release date TBD, but I’d guess 2022. Many thanks to my amazing agent, @rossharris1, and my tremendous editor, @amardeol. Wish me luck!
McMahon does have a history. Check out some of his highlights:
Opinion: This is entirely going to depend on how deep Riesman can get into McMahon’s history. I doubt McMahon will actually have any direct involvement in the book and that means it will be a bunch of reporting on what everyone else has said over the years. There are several amazing stories out there, but it would depend on what Riesman can find that hasn’t been said before. It very well could be great, but McMahon is one of the more complicated subjects around today so it could go several ways.
