Thy Kingdom Come
on 30 October 2013
Told through his voice, his stories of the road, wrestlers, wrestling, Vince and becoming COO would be an incredible tale. A DVD, then, told through his voice using footage, images and, crucially, the voices of those who were around when it all happened would be even more remarkable.
The tale of the boy from Nashua, NH, to two working class doting parents who would work hard every day of his life to eventually become the chief operating officer of a multi-million dollar organisation is told through the voices of literally everyone who is anyone from WWE in the last 25 years.
Like in so many areas of this documentary, the story is made even more rich and engaging by its narrators: the DVD's spine is made up by the voices of Jim Ross, Shawn Michaels, Vince, Steph, The Rock, Steve Austin, Big Show, Dave Bautista, Ric Flair, John Cena, Randy Orton, Kevin Nash, Mick Foley, Sean Waltman, Brock Lesnar, both Paul's parents and, of course, The Undertaker.
His injuries are covered with the first particularly given room. His comeback is and was remarkable and film of the doctors discussing him and operating on him is really well-placed. Upon his return, too, Flair, Orton and Bautista all praise not just his work ethic but his remarkable character and nature. Orton describes how patient his was with him in his younger days and how Triple H took him under his wingand made him what he is today. The Matches were great- from Wcw-WWe. Overall For the documentary alone, the new Thy Kingdom Come dvd set is a must.
