I know what you're wondering, why is that one of the titles? Well let me explain a bit about what happens during the movie.
**Warning May Contain Spoilers**
This movie was made by acclaimed director Barry Blaustein who is a huge wrestling fan and it takes you behind the scenes of the wrestling world and some of it's biggest names. Mainly New Jack from ECW and Mick Foley from WWE. This basically reveals every secret the WWE tries to keep you from knowing, from the scripted shows to the rivals chilling and laughing with each other backstage, plus it makes Vince look kind of foolish when he is interviewing Darron Drozdov later to be known as The Droz and giving him the name Puke and making him throw up in a rubbish bin.
This shows a very honest and sometimes disturbing look at the real world of wrestling including an honest and somewhat upsetting look at the troubled life of Jake "The Snake" Roberts.
Buy this movie if you love wrestling or even if you are a critic who likes to go round saying wrestling is fake. This may change your mind.

How many times have you had to tell your friends, 'it is scripted but its not as fake as you think'? This film is proof of that and looks beyond the glamour and the coreography to the consequences of getting your body thrown around a ring and being away from your family for about fifty weeks of the year. It is not all fun and games and a last the wrestling fan has a documentry evidence to prove this to all those who sneer at pro-wrestling.

This is a very good film inside the world of Professional Wrestling.as many people say its just fake and its just a big circus act? Yes it is a big circus in my mind but i love what the wrestlers do for us they go out their everyweek to entertain us, however its not all fake as the pain is all very real and much more if you would like to see how wrestling works by this dvd.
It just makes you appriciate what they do even more.

Please be advised this review does contain spoilers.

As a fan of professional wrestling since the days of World Of Sport on a Saturday afternoon here in the UK, this documentary was always going to be of interest to me, and it was, expanding further on what I knew about professional wrestling while also seeing the resulting injuries collected by these athletes in the name of entertainment.

Directed and narrated by Barry Blaustein, a self confessed huge wrestling fan this documentary takes you behind the scenes of professional wrestling, showing you a variety of wrestlers from those starting off in the industry in small locally run wrestling promotions(I believe the guy was called Mike Modest), Matt "Spike Dudley" Hyson then of ECW making a name for himself in a minor national promotion, to big names such as Mick Foley (at the top of the industry), Terry Funk (considering retirement after many years in the industry) to those for whom life as not been so good, it takes you behind the scenes to the parts of wrestling no fan usually gets to see.

It has to be said that parts of this film are uncomfortable to watch especially the scenes where the young children of Mick Foley become very upset watching at ringside during his no-disqualification match with The Rock, and the fraught relationship between Jake Roberts and his daughter. There are also a few humorous moments too but they are few are far between and naturally so, as this is a documentary about a industry where it's workers pay a heavy toll on their bodies and lives while doing their jobs.

Over I would rate this as one of the best wrestling related documentaries I have seen.

I watched this film and was totally amazed, I have read Mick Foley's book and this documentary runs parallel to it. The bits about Jake Roberts are just astounding, how that man is still in the business amazes me, I recommend this video, even the Rock looks like a genuinly nice guy. It's just a pity that Al Snow isn't in it, he's mentioned in the credits though.

This video is an absolute must for all wrestling fans. And not just WWF fans. Watching this gives an insight into the world of professional wrestling, ranging from training at the bottom to those who are fortunate enough to make it to the top. But this is not just for fans, if you have ever said the words, "Wrestling is fake" then I highly recommend that you buy this video. Then perhaps you will realise what an injustice it is to say those words.

This is certainly not your average wrestling video! It focuses on the continuing stories of Jake 'the Snake' Roberts, Terry Funk and Mick Foley. Filmed over three years it documents the life of these three heroes. It seems strange that the WWF wanted to block this as it shows the WWF in a very good light, we see the good backstage atmosphere, and Vince McMahon comes across as a very good leader for the WWF. This is a must buy for any wrestling fan.
