WWE: Who the company didn’t want in CNN documentary

While CNN reporter Drew Griffin and his production crew were putting together their hour-long documentary concerning drugs in the world of professional wrestling, they were scheduled to do an interview with Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. On the day Griffin’s team was scheduled to come to his house to interview him for the story, a change in plans occurred. Vince McMahon wouldn’t allow any interviews with anyone in WWE, including himself, if CNN put Meltzer in their documentary. In the end, McMahon won out as the documentary featured interviews with WWE employees, not to mention access to a WWE event backstage, and Meltzer was nowhere to be found in the documentary.
