I absolutely loved this DVD. I only wish WWE would be willing to produce a few documentaries like this one.
The documentary started with how it started & evolved from the carnival circuit to the small arena with every seat having a front row view before going into the various attractions the territory would have from midgets to women & the positive effect it would have by adding variety. Issues of racism was discussed next with Sputnik Monroe being defined as a "black man in a white man's body" for how he fought the fight of segregation of the black fans when it wasn't a battle he had to fight followed by the discussion of his feud with Billy Wicks & how it was such a draw that a World Heavyweight Champion of boxing got involved as well before going into the various opinions of the the promoters of Nick Gullas & Roy Welch was talked about along with how Jerry Jarrett got into promoting at a very young age.Read more ›
I've seen it twice in the past few months and am ready to watch it again. It's that kind of film.
Funny, crazy and entertaining Memphis wrestling history told by the wrestlers, promoters, managers, and TV studio MC's themselves along with vintage film footage.
Action packed, fast moving entertainment with a killer sound track!
I recently gave a friend a copy as a birthday gift and they loved it too.
I wasn't especially a big wrestling fan before I saw this and Now I Am!!!"
