You'll never look at the WWE the same again
on 23 July 2003
This is quite possibly the most enthralling documentary ever made. The first half an hour I thought i had bought a dull documentary looking at Bret Hart's family & up bringing. Which is quite possibly all that the documentary maker, Paul Jay, had intended when he started filming. What he finished up with though, was a true story in pictures of how Vince McMahon betrayed Bret, leading to his departure from the WWF, & moving to WCW.
What you see of Vince McMahon every week on Raw & Smackdown, you may consider to be just an act. This documentary exposes just how real the character is. How vince's actions on screen parrallel to his actions off it.
I have only really been watching WWE since just before the 2001 Invasion, so prior to buying this video had never really seen Bret Hart wrestle, & knew very little about Ted Turner's WCW. Despite this, i found this video very interesting & intense. I may even go so far as to say that someone who has never even watched wrestling would enjoy this video. It is a tale of back stabbing & betrayal to rival that even of Shakespeare.
Bret Hart for fourteen years was at the forefront of the WWF, yet you never really see any of his footage. Want to know why? This video gives a true account of what really happened to Bret. Anyone who knows anything about wrestling will find this video a worthy buy. Very highly recommended.
