Alt-Country singer Neko Case, who performs on the soundtrack, discovered while watching a rough cut of the film that one of the wrestlers, Ella Waldek, is actually an aunt of hers whom she had never met before. They subsequently met for the first time at the film's premiere. See more »
For the most part, I enjoyed the movie. It provided more information on the backgrounds and careers of the lady wrestlers than you find on most fan wrestling sites, books and magazines. I am surprised, and a little disappointed, that African American lady wrestlers were not included in this movie. I would think for every roadblock the featured wrestlers encountered, the African Americans would have encountered twice as many- one for sex and another for race. One needs only take a look at the book "Black Stars of Professional Wrestling," by Julian L.D. Shabazz, for names like Dinah Beamon, Mary Horton, Ethel Johnson and so many others. A couple of the ladies in movie did mention wrestling African American ladies. Maybe Ruth Leitman is saving that for her next movie.
