Has anybody seen this documentary yet? I rented it today, and there are some totally goofy people in this. But, one guy, a "promoter" in Modesto California seems like he could be a terrific businessman, and seems to have a good head for the business. BTW, he is only 17.
Overall I thought it was a very good film, it even had some british teenage BYWs.
I saw this a few years ago when it was first made, as a friend of mine had what was essentially a walk-on (he's part of the "Kendall, New York" section). Thought it wasn't that good, as it put the spotlight on total jackasses that do nothing but make wrestling fans as a whole look like idiots. I did like the RVD segments though.
You think WWE now is bad? Some of us had to live through 1993-1996!
I started watching it and fell asleep last night, I am going to finish it tonight
The family at the beginning was really messed up, I loved the scene with the Butcher and Scar, I laughed with them hitting each other with stuff right in front of their mother...I liked RVD's thoughts and a lot of them rang true with me...The Lizard was a poster boy for why kids should graduate

Had the same with Taz' debut in MSG. The crowd did a huge chant before he came out, but it didn't translate well on tv.. Just depends on where the mics are i guess. Heh...muting is better than faking the chants like WCW did.
