When I saw that there was a documentary on the history of British wrestling, I had to get my hands on it. Especially, since most of the stuff I’ve gotten recently from Highspots has been pretty good.
This was a giant fucking bag of meh, though.
It’s just under an hour and while it talks about the history of professional wrestling in the United Kingdom, it barely puts any real emphasis on the past and focuses much more on the recent past, covering stuff from the late ’90s and into the ’00s.
Honestly, after it moved past the old school stuff, I lost interest.
It’s not that this was bad, it’s just that the title implies that it is about the long and storied history of British wrestling. This just glances over that shit really quickly and then just wants to show a bunch of modern stars talking about more recent stuff.
Well, hopefully someone out there can make the documentary that I had hoped this was.
Pairs well with: other more modern documentaries on wrestling history.
