Twenty years later, WWE is looking back on when they hosted the first large gathering, a SmackDown taping, following the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center.
The documentary will be called “Never Forget” and it will premiere on the WWE Network (Peacock in the United States) on Friday, September 10, just one day before the 20-year anniversary of the tragic attacks.
Rounding out the week on Friday, 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. 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.
