VINCE MCMAHON: Blumhouse Television teams with WWE for McMahon steroid trial series

Posted on 7/27/121 by Colin Vassallo

Blumhouse Television is partnering with WWE to develop a
limited series based on Vince McMahons steroid trial from
the mid-90s titled The United States of America vs. Vince

We have a dramatic, riveting saga one thats crazier than
fiction that will appeal to the cross-section of Blumhouse
and WWE fans, said Blumhouse TV president Chris McCumber.
To say Im thrilled about collaborating again with WWE is
an understatement.

Back in the 90s, a series of stories published by the New
York Post alleged that the WWE Chairman was giving steroids
to his Superstars. The stories ultimately resulted in the
FBI and New York prosecutors to indict McMahon on several
drug-related charges.

The press release states, With his liberty at stake, two
school-aged children at home and with WWE on the brink of
bankruptcy, McMahon refused to take a plea deal. Ultimately,
McMahon stood trial and was acquitted unanimously by a jury
of his peers and went on to build a multi-billion-dollar
global sports entertainment empire.
