I was doing a search on Myspace and YouTube for wrestling videos and documentaries and am wondering what people would recommend.

I have that 101 Reasons dvd and it's pretty brutal in quality. But that's been discussed to death.

I came across a new documentary that allegedly has over 20 pro wrestlers from the big leagues. Anyone heard anything about this? Can someone tell me if this is for real? I haven't heard of it yet on any of the news sites.

Well, to NOT answer the question...

In terms of wrestling films, I would heartily reccommend the Foul King, the greatest fictional wrestling film ever. (Korean, my avatar id swiped from the film)

I would also suggest looking for Calamari Wrestler. (Japanese - incredibly messed up and fun.)

And Mr. Rookie is about a baseball relief pitcher who wears a Tiger Mask. (Also Japanese)

I know that a film maker from Ottawa is following Vampiro around.

There was a relatively decent documentary about the whole backyard wrestling phenomenon called "Backyard"

W5 here in Canada just aired a documentary about Canadian joshi Sarah Stock

Oh and our local CTV station CFCF-12 just evicerated us about three-four months ago in a documentary for their "On Assignement" series.

Best part of it was watching the Ontario Athletic Commissioner soberly explain why he regulates wrestling and then see the Quebec Athletic Commissioner basically wave off the reporter impatiently - "Wrestling is not a sport. It's all rigged. It's like a play. I don't regulate Centaur (local theatre company), I'm not regulating this."

(Some local wrestlers got offended by his comments, but personally I was cheering.)

The Sarah Stock film and the one from Montreal are on the internet somewhere for download, but I am too lazy to go look for them. (Plus, I am only up because my legs hurt and I can't sleep.)

Here is a link to the Dark Angel story. It is quite well-done, excepting Lloyd Robertson's "I'd rather be anywhere else" look at the end of the story. The video links are on the right side of the page.
