WWE has announced that “Never Forget: WWE Returns After 9/11” will premiere this Friday, one day before the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The documentary will be available on Peacock/WWE Network, WWE’s YouTube channel, and WWE’s Facebook page.
“WWE commemorates the 20-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, with an all-new documentary, Never Forget: WWE Returns After 9/11,” WWE wrote. “Hear from Superstars like ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, Kurt Angle, Edge and many more as they remember being involved in one of the most emotional and patriotic SmackDown episodes in WWE history just two days after the attacks.”
Vince McMahon was also interviewed for the documentary.
The post-9/11 SmackDown was held at the Compaq Center in Houston, Texas on September 13, 2001. Stephanie McMahon has received criticism for comments she made on the episode where she compared how the U.S. became more united after the attacks to how Vince McMahon’s steroid trial made her family stronger.
WWE will be in New York City as this Friday’s SmackDown takes place at Madison Square Garden. The show will feature an appearance by Brock Lesnar, Edge vs. Seth Rollins, and a contract signing for Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair’s SmackDown Women’s Championship match at Extreme Rules.
