The most brainless T.V. movie!
23 May 1999 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

NBC, who would have known the best TV network to make such a brainless movie. Not only did the writers get his wrestling story mostly wrong, the acting & outline was just AWFUL. WCW was written in mostly all the arenas for one thing. Governer Ventura even had the brains to not accept this as his movie. Jesse vs. Goldberg? Excuse me, but Goldberg never wrestled in the 70's! I can't really believe NBC had a lot to do with this movie. Before they make a movie about a wrestler, I hope they at least get things right! I give this movie no stars out of 4 stars. It was simply brainless.
