Full Documentary released for ‘Never Forget: WWE Returns After 9/11’

Cageside Seats 10 September, 2021 - 01:15pm

In addition to streaming on Peacock, WWE released the full documentary on its YouTube channel. You can watch it here:

In the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, as terror and tragedy dominated the media landscape, WWE provided a beacon of hope with a live edition of SmackDown. This documentary explores the preparation of the historic event that brought unity to a country when it was needed most.

My initial feeling upon word of this documentary being put together was that it was going to be the typical self-congratulatory WWE piece. The company is awfully good at that, after all. But while it may be that to some degree, it’s wouldn’t be fair to reduce it to that. It’s actually a pretty damn good documentary on what was a legitimately meaningful show, considering it was one of the first major public gatherings following the attacks. It’s been long enough now that it’s easy to forget just how uneasy the days following Sept. 11, 2001, actually were. It was scary. It felt unsafe. The sports world came to a screeching halt.

One thing you learn about dealing with death, and trauma, and any other adversity, though, is that you simply cannot stop in the face of it. It’s not just that you should move forward, it’s that you must. There is no other way. This was a step toward that.

The documentary also serves as a reminder of the sense of togetherness that existed there. If the excessive patriotism feels kind of cheesy, and it comes across a bit that way now with all this distance from it, it absolutely felt appropriate at the time.

And then, hey, it was awfully nice just to watch some pro wrestling and think a little bit less about how stressful everything else was, respectfully.

WWE reflects on first SmackDown after 9/11 in new documentary

FOXSports.com 10 September, 2021 - 01:07pm

"Never Forget: WWE Returns After 9/11" tells the story of Vince McMahon’s decision to run a live SmackDown just two days after terrorists hijacked airplanes and used them to take down the World Trade Center.

The show was held on Sept. 13, 2001, at the Compaq Center in Houston, and it became the first public assembly of its size after the attacks.

For those who were old enough to process what happened, feelings of fear, confusion and sadness were running at an all-time high throughout the country after 9/11. People were unsure if another attack were imminent. Many couldn’t get in touch with family or friends in New York. It was truly an awful time in our history.

This documentary doesn’t shy away from those feelings. Instead, it shows some of the talent who were involved sharing how they were initially unsure if they were doing the right thing by being there, which was a necessary bit of honesty at the start.

Hearing Steve Austin open up about his initial reservations and how Vince McMahon swayed his opinion by saying the country needed entertainment was fascinating on a few levels.

Speaking of Vince, he’s one of the main talking heads for a majority of the 35-minute feature. Since it was his call to run the show, hearing him detail why he made certain decisions and how he felt throughout makes this a documentary you won’t want to miss if you’re interested in how he thinks.

The WWE Chairman is especially emotional in this one, for obvious reasons, and to see a more vulnerable side of him is gripping as well.

One particular part of the documentary that brought me to tears was the section about Lilian Garcia singing the national anthem.

Being reminded of people’s raw feelings after the terrorist attacks — from the fans to the Superstars to even the ring announcer — brought back memories of how it felt to live through that.

We all needed hope at that time, and Lilian singing a song that suddenly resonated with Americans more than ever helped usher in a night of that, which was what everyone desperately needed.

Watching her hit each note again gave me chills.

Additional names who speak about that night in the documentary include Bruce Prichard, Stephanie McMahon, Booker T, Triple H, Sean "X-Pac" Waltman and former NBA player Robert Horry (who was in the crowd).

Even if you remember this episode of SmackDown vividly, which I’m sure many of you do, the documentary is worth watching for the additional nuggets of information you might not have known, as well as Vince McMahon being open about a lot of his feelings that day.

Paul Heyman hints female star has already joined The Bloodline

Sportskeeda 10 September, 2021 - 01:04am

Paul Heyman opened up about the possibility of adding Naomi to The Bloodline in an interview with the New York Post.

Many among the WWE Universe have been clamoring to see Naomi being added to The Bloodline for a long time. Fans aren't happy with Naomi's position on the roster either. They feel that being added to the stable will revitalize her career.

Paul Heyman gave a detailed answer when asked about the possibility of Naomi joining The Bloodline. Heyman also indicated that Naomi could already be a part of the group.

Over the course of his decades-long career, Paul Heyman has helped several wrestlers. One wonders where Brock Lesnar would have been today if he hadn't paired up with Heyman back in 2002. The same could be said about Roman Reigns, following his heel turn in 2020.

Hi @SonyaDevilleWWE just sending you a friendly reminder😌 because tomorrow is FRIDAY! I’m still waiting for my first match 💚 pic.twitter.com/5D4awvugDk

Naomi is a two-time SmackDown Women's Champion and is one of the most beloved female stars of WWE. She also won the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal in 2018.

Fans have been complaining that Naomi is underutilized on the main roster. Would you like to see her being presented on SmackDown as a member of The Bloodline? Judging by Paul Heyman's comments above, do you think she has already joined the stable?
