Reviewed on 9/22/2010...
This DVD really explains/uncovers wrestling's roots. Whether you love or hate this form of entertainment, it's informative if nothing else. You'll gain a whole new perspective on an unknown subject if you're not already one of the initiated.

Don't waste your money...
Art Vandalay | 11/08/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This title really is a waste of cash. If you saw it
on A&E when it first came out then you will know what I mean.
If not, trust your Uncle Jon here- the stories on here are
mostly fiction, even the interviews they do. The story on
Andre the Giant and Wrestlemania III is laugh out loud for
how little truth there is to it. They focus a little on the
early days (get your truth meter out) and then jump mainly
to the 1990's and the WWF. A man like Ric Flair, who has done
so much for this industry, is glossed over with at most 3
minutes of screen time. Bruno Sammartino is skipped entirely,
as are countless others that are legendary figures in
pro wrestling. Skip this title and go get Beyond the Mat or
even better- Wrestling with Shadows."
One Of The Best Wrestling Documentaries Avalible.

"Honestly, if you are looking for a wrestling documentary, if you don't already have it, I would highly suggest getting Beyond The Mat before buying this one, as Beyond The Mat is a much better, much deeper look into the world of professional wrestling. If you already have or have seen Beyond The Mat, this DVD would be an excellent add to your collection. This documentary originally aired on A&E, and is presented in a manner to explain pro wrestling to the non-wrestling fan. For wrestling collectors, this is a must have. For the casual fan, go with Beyond The Mat instead."
Only a true wrestling fan would have a video like this!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"From the wrestling legends, to the their gimmicks and matches, this documentary shows it all. Just be prepared to spend a couple hours in front of the old tube... You can find all of your old favorites from Lou Thesz to Andre the Giant, to Hulk Hogan, and more! I reccomend this movie to any real hardcore wrestling fan who wants to know more about true Sports Entertainment."
