The WWE Network has recently provided a consistent number of documentaries that have captivated and enthralled audiences and at WWE Survivor Series, we learned of a new documentary series coming in 2021.
WWE Icons was advertised as coming in 2021. The short trailer, which you can see below, teased episodes about Yokozuna, Lex Luger, Rob Van Dam, Beth Phoenix, and “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith.
Yokozuna was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012. A member of the famous Samoan Dynasty, Yokozuna was a two-time WWE Champion before he sadly passed away in 2000.
Beth Phoenix is a multiple-time champion who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017. In real life, she's married to fellow WWE Hall of Famer Adam “Edge" Copeland.
Neither Rob Van Dam nor Lex Luger is in the WWE Hall of Fame. Rob Van Dam was a WWE Champion once in 2006. He was last in WWE in 2013. Luger was once believed to be a successor to Hulk Hogan. He received a WWE Championship shot at SummerSlam 1993 and won the Royal Rumble in 1994, but following his exit to WCW in 1995, Lex Luger was never seen in WWE again.
“The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith was supposed to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2020 before the global pandemic shut everything down. Smith’s daughter, Georgia Smith commented on the documentary on Twitter.
