2.0 out of 5 stars Not What I Was Expecting, November 26, 2012
This review is from: Bloodstained Memoirs: Special Edition (DVD)
This documentary is good but nowhere near great. It's a series of individual interviews, each about 15-20 minutes long, about some of each of the wrestler's personal experiences. With the exception of Chris Jericho. His entire interview is devoted to his rock band Fozzy. Nothing is mentioned or asked of his wrestling career. Maybe because at the time of this interview, it was one of the many times he wasn't an active wrestler. With all due respect to Ultimo Dragon and his ability, English must be his 3rd or 4th language. He cannot communicate. Same with The Great Muta. But his interview is subtitled. He legitimately cannot speak English. The intros by Al Snow are nothing special. The questions that the interviewer asks are pretty generic and elementary at best. They're nothing in depth. They're basic questions that even the most novice wrestling fan could ask. The best interviews are given by Roddy Piper and Nora Greenwald. Again, nothing earth shattering but good nonetheless. Jimmy Snuka, Christian, and Rob Van Dam get kinda boring after a while. The Mick Foley interview was absolutely pointless. It wasn't an interview at all. All of it is footage taken from an book signing appearance he makes at a Borders bookstore. And it's rather boring. It's as if the only reason his name is on the DVD is to sell more copies. Overall, if you're looking for hard hitting questions and behind the curtain stories. this isn't for you. This is fluff material at best. Any true wrestling fan should probably rent this and not buy it. After watching this, I didn't learn anything new and had no true insights on the wrestlers who were interviewed. As a lifelong wrestling fan, I really felt like my time was wasted and my intelligence insulted.
