After seven years, Wrestling with Shadows still shocks me!, 20 April 2004
It has been seven years since i first saw Wrestling with Shadows and i wasrecently compelled to buy it. The story of how a hero was screwed from anevil promoter is still shocking. It also highlights that wrestling mightnot be as glamorous as it is portrayed as. It is sad to see that Bret Harthas never quite recovered from the event. It was the start of the end ofBret Hart as a wrestler as he was never able to get his career back ontracks.
The interview at the end of the tape highlights the main themes of thedocumentary and gives a great insight of the documentary from both thedirector and Bret Harts standpoint.
Watching the behind the scences footage of the events that the WWE producelike the Survivor Series is surreal and it gives a great insight on whatthe people behind the characters are like.
They are not like the " Circus Animals" that they are referred to in theDocumentary.
The documentary is insightful, shocking, heart breaking and compelling andit is a must have for any wrestling fan, who has never seen what it islike behind the Curtains.
