The downfall of WCW has been well documented and featured all around the world. While it has been narrated numerous times, the most significant one was the WWE-produced documentary, ‘The Rise and Fall of WCW’, which was released back in 2009. 

While there are a number of documentaries out, another one about WCW’s downfall is set to be released. Vice and Seven Bucks Production’s upcoming series, ‘Who Killed WCW?’, is set to be released soon and millions around the world expect nothing new from it as well. However, producer Brian Gewirtz has claimed that it would be a lot different than people expect. 

On the Masked Man Show, the producer stated that he wouldn’t have got the series in plans if he didn’t have anything new to show. He stated that the show’s creators had a chat with ones who witnessed WCW’s demise closely, to reveal the truth. 

“They’re not buying it if it’s the same old, same old… We interviewed top Turner executives and have them tell their story unfiltered. That’s really, at the heart of the matter, the relationship between Turner broadcasting and WCW. We got Brad Siegel and top WCW and Turner executives. Ted Turner’s son is interviewed. We got the big names. Bret [Hart], Kevin Nash, Goldberg, Booker T and Sharmell, [Eric] Bischoff, [Vince] Russo, DDP, Konnan, David Arquette, Madusa, and we have The Rock speaking on it from a ‘This is what we were seeing on the WWE side.’ But we truly wanted to tell the ‘real story’ of WCW from the people that were there and not the WWE version.”


Given that Gewirtz has claimed the show to be a lot different than people expect, it could turn out to be a massive revelation of truth as well. It would be interesting to see what differences come out to light when the series is released.

What different do you think will Vice’s new documentary feature that the older ones haven’t? Let us know in the comments section below.
