Worst Wrestling Film Ever

"This had to be the most absurd film ever. What I hope was supposed to be a bio-doc on the life and career of Sting (or close to it), the film was a hodge-podge of nonsensical wrestling clips from WCW, audio that did not follow the on screen action during those clips, typos in the credits, and in general, things not making a lick of sense. It's similar to a first edit of a film, yet they didn't bother to fix it up.
There is also (in the beginning) a severe overuse of 'B' roll footage, seemingly used to pad the films run time. The B Roll was intended to give the viewer a sense of where the story is and was, but it ends up making you think of how many boring generic clips can they play in order, to the beat of bad music?
Sting himself has to be a odd person. Having seen his WCW dvd, 'Sting Unmasked', in which Sting stays in character...and his character is a real weirdo, btw. It carries over to this film. This is just a weird film period.
For the diehard Sting fan, or the wrestling fan not wanting to miss out on a tremendously bad wrestling film (which doubles as a Christian recruitment film), check it out for yourself. But be sure to follow along with Derek Burgan's review of the film. Just google for it.
Good luck, and stay Sting!"
