Possibly the greatest Wrestling Documentary ever made, must watch classic.

Truth be told, I was never really a BIG WWF, WWE, MONDAY NIGHT RAW wrestling fan…I causally watched it, but growing up in a house with a single mother, no real brothers—believe it or not…I wasn’t the wrestling kid.

I had a few guys I like to watch, Junkyard Dog, BamBamBigallow, Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, etc…but by the time guys like Steve Austin, The Rock, Brock Lesnar came along—I was even less of a ‘casual’ watcher.

The old school wrestling style of promotions where they are going on the road every weekend, promoting regional stars, being a ‘character’, has really become prevalent in the UFC model with fighters like Conor Mcgreger, Chael Sonnen, and even Tito Ortiz assuming ‘Characters’ and becoming stars.

This documentary reminds me a lot of MMA, especially the early days of the UFC–before fighters were making 7 million a fight. Brett Hart is competing in the highest rated Pro Wrestling event in the USA Brett hart was before the MEGA PAYDAYS that you see some of the top wrestlers making today.  This documentary really goes into some of the emotion behind the WWF circuit—this documentary would be to PRO WRESTLING what the SMASHING MACHINE  Mark Kerr story is to MMA
