Lost in the shuffle? WWE has been shaken up a lot in recent months, though there are some changes that have flown a bit under the radar. One of the biggest has been the shift from the WWE Network to Peacock, which marked the end of a seven year run and started a new five year version. The content available has changed a bit, though now it seems that we might not be seeing some content for a long time.
According to PWInsider.com, WWE has shelved several completed documentaries. This includes documentaries on a superfan named Vladimir, Lex Luger, Ric Flair and Money in the Bank. WWE advertised the Vladimir and Luger documentaries, with the former being mentioned as recently as September 11. There is no word on why WWE has chosen not to release them and nothing to suggest they will be released in the future.
They’re interesting subjects. Check out some of what you won’t be seeing:
Opinion: Your guess is as good as mine on this as I have long since given up on trying to figure out what the heck WWE is doing most of the time. They make some rather odd decisions a lot of the time and that is the case again here. WWE has invested the time and money to make these documentaries but for some reason they would rather have them sit on a shelf. I’m not sure what the point is in having such expensive paperweights, but it’s not like WWE makes that much sense most of the time these days anyway.
Why would WWE do this? Which of the documentaries interests you the most? Let us know in the comments below.
