Good movie if it would stick to wrestling
15 April 2012 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Sad this movie did kill WCW forever, this wrestling federation went down even further if it would have stick to its wrestling only (the "King" storyline with DDP and the evil manager Sinclair), but instead, went into too much vulgarity such as raw sewage and toilet bowl humour, which was not necessary at all. I would have went another direction rather than putting too much of feces jokes.

Martin Landau is great as a former wrestler turned teacher. And the wrestling storyline is just like what we see on TV.

Bottom line: should have stick to wrestling only, as it is the only entertaining portion here...
