Johnson emphasized that there was no sinister intent behind the delay, stating, "There are people I know who, on a consistent basis, have brought it up [in WWE].
And there's no evil here. No one's twisting their mustache going, 'Ha ha ha, we're screwing Vladimir.' I don't think anybody's purposely gone out of their way not to release it. It's just there's been some shifting in their landscape, and I think it's something that's unfortunately been lost in the cracks." Fans can expect a high-quality documentary in line with WWE Network's renowned production standards.
WWE's documentaries are often celebrated for their depth and production excellence, and "Superfan: The Story of Vladimir" appears poised to follow suit. Mike Johnson offered his endorsement, stating, "I think people will love it, and it's about someone I care about on a very deep basis.
He's not even my friend; he's like my brother at this point. And if I'm lucky enough to have that voice where I can remind people, 'Hey, remember this thing you did that you spent money on that is really special and should be out for everyone to see, that will make your company look better?' I'm going to do that.'
" As this long-awaited documentary hits the screens, wrestling enthusiasts and fans of compelling storytelling can rejoice in the unveiling of Vladimir's extraordinary journey through the world of professional wrestling.
