Chris Adams at one time was a superstar, through this film you get to look into the life of someone that was once famous and loses their glory going through life. It is incredible the amount of damage that one can do to themselves by not choosing their friends and path in life wisely.
This film is exciting and worth while to see. Even if you are not a wrestling fan you will enjoy this documentary which journeys through ones life that ultimately leads them to a tragic death.
Job well done to the Director Mickey Grant! This was well put together!
I rank this film in the top 5 documentaries I've ever viewed, and I'm someone who views a lot of documentaries. I'm amazed that director Mickey Grant was able to get so many of those "crazies" who at the end of Adams life played such a role in his destruction. Even the preacher who talked about the holy spirit grabbing Adams up and throwing him across the room as if the church was a wrestling ring. How did Grant get all these people to reveal such dark and crazy sides of themeselves? Not all the people that were in Adams life were crazy but the few who were seem to really reflect the insaniety that was occuring in the life of Adams. This is the challenging type of story telling you have to do when your protagonist Adams is already dead. Rarely do I see a documentary that actually has an antagonist in it but also one who is carefully fleshed out. That person would be Lacy, the vindictive woman who Chris had fired.
The actual story telling in this film is better than most major Hollywood films. There is a war going on in this film and it's not typical Hollywood.Read more ›

This documentary is as much of a mess as The Gentleman's life. I was hoping for a solid well put together story much like Heroes of World Class. WRONGPublished on August 25, 2013 by Ty fighter
Great insight into Chris Adams downfall. Would have been nice if it would have concentrated on his good side too. Plus I think talking to his killer was horrible! Read morePublished on January 11, 2013 by Melissa Patterson

|Were many of the wrestlers who died in the past years GHB addicts?||
I think it's about 50 wrestlers who have died. I appreciate the compliments Ram.
