Lots of fun for true pro-wrestling fans.
19 February 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This film is shot as a pseudo-documentary about a wrestler who disappears after killing an opponent. If you are a big fan of pro wrestling, then I think you will get a kick out of this film. If you are not a big fan, you still might find this amusing, but it is mostly meant for the die-hard fans. I dig B-movies, so I bought this one. I recommend it.
