Trivia

According to'Paul Jay', after the incident in which Bret Hart punched Vince McMahon, McMahon refused to allow any footage or other wrestlers from WWF to appear in the film. WCW, the rival wrestling company, offered Jay a deal to show the film on pay-per-view. Jay was then offered a deal from WWF which would allow the footage and the wrestlers to appear as long as he turned the deal with WCW down. Jay believes that someone in WCW was an informant for McMahon. See more »

Great movie! Wrestling fans are sure to like.
23 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

I have been a Bret Hart fan for as long as I can remember and when I heard of his betrayal by the WWF I was mad. This film portrays events leading up to and a bit after the Montreal incident. I think it is a really good film. I especially liked the behind the scenes aspect of the WWF.
