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

The reason for that is simple... RVD can work a non-hardcore match. ECW was too extreme for too long and most of its wrestlers forgot how to work outside the Hardcore umbrella. That's why so many of them are stuck in crap feds like the XPW.
