David Penzer Says He Was Not Interviewed For ‘Who Killed WCW?’ Documentary

David Penzer was surprisingly not interviewed for the “Who Killed WCW?” documentary,

The former WCW announcer was present for every episode of WCW Nitro and Thunder. You’d think he would be the perfect man to be included in the show.

David Penzer recently appeared on Fightful’s The Spotlight. The former WCW announcer revealed he was in talks with the production about appearing in the documentary. They were interested in having him interviewed about the company’s downfall.

However, he noted that producers likely decided on a few people to be included in the show. Finally, Penzer revealed he didn’t make the cut, but is looking forward to seeing the show.

“I was not. I was in talks with them about it. They were interested. I don’t know if this is what I was told or if it’s true.” David Penzer said. “But at some point, they had to decide, ‘These are the eight or ten people we’re going to interview,’ and I didn’t make the cut. I understood, it was no hard feelings. If you have to pick between David Penzer and Eric Bischoff or David Penzer and Kevin Nash, you’re stupid not to get the main guys.”

“They were going to use me sort of as my book is, as just a non-wrestler watching it all and what my perspective was. I was one of the last cuts they made and that’s cool. I would have been excited to do it, but quite frankly, if you want to hear my take on it, just buy the book. I’m looking forward to seeing it.”

Dave Penzer was not the only man excluded from the documentary. One of WCW’s biggest legends, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, was incensed at not being interviewed for “Who Killed WCW?” earlier this month.

Sitting Ringside

David Penzer spoke with WrestleZone while promoting his new book, Sitting Ringside: Volume 1Penzer shared details about his TNA departure, noting that he had plenty of notice about the move. However, he took the “passing the torch” moment with a great sense of pride.

“And I thought, ‘Hey maybe that was it for me.’ He goes, ‘Well, you can’t do this forever.’ I said, ‘Well, I understand that.’ He said, ‘Well there might be a time coming up here, that it might come to an end for now.’ And I said, ‘Could you give an estimation [of when you might make that move to replace me] because I don’t have to worry about it.’ He goes, ‘You’re good through at least end of the year,’” Penzer explained.

“What I didn’t know that he knew and he couldn’t tell me is, he was bringing TNA back and he wanted a new look, which made a lot of sense,” Penzer said. “But he made it clear that I was passing the mic to Jen. So I took that as a great deal of source of pride. Gary Capetta passed the mic to me. I wanted to take it as an [opportunity to] help her out as much as I can.”
