An official Vince McMahon autobiography is on the way and currently being “shopped to publishers.”
For years WWE fans have been fascinated by Vince McMahon’s real-life story and rise to become the most powerful wrestling promotor in history.
Despite being an on-screen personality for decades, and in the public eye even longer, McMahon’s life away from WWE has remained relatively private. This has created a great deal of intrigue about the WWE Chairman.
However, at least some of that intrigue might be about to be satisfied as the New York Post’s Page Six report that Vince McMahon is “shopping a memoir to publishers this week.” The book is said to be centred around the building of WWE.
The source adds that a deal could be imminent, explaining, ‘There have been other bios on him and WWE in the past, but this is very much his memoir told in his voice about his rise and life.'”
There is also another book on the way about McMahon titled “Ringmaster.” However, he isn’t cooperating with author Abraham Riesman on the project.
Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that the new autobiography will go head-to-head with “Ringmaster.”
“Representatives of Vince McMahon are shopping to the major book companies the idea of an autobiography of Vince to talk about how he built the WWE. The New York Post reported on it this week saying that everyone has been mum in trying to keep it a secret.
This would attempt to go head-to-head with the Abraham Riesman (who wrote a bio on Stan Lee) book ‘Ringmaster’ that Simon & Shuster is putting out early next year. That’s the book project they first asked me about. That book, that Riesman has been working on since 2020, didn’t include any help from WWE or McMahon, but just about everyone else talked with him about it.”
There is also a Netflix documentary heading to screens, with a recent update confirming the project is still in production.
