Quotes

[on the Warrior hailing from "Parts Unknown"]
Bobby Heenan: He was probably too stupid to know where he was from! Either that, or someone paid him to keep it quiet. 'Here's 50 bucks, don't say you're from Pittsburg!'

Backhanded, Self-Serving and Thoroughly Forced
20 March 2013 | by (Bradenton, FL) – See all my reviews

Fun as an overly specific retrospective of the WWF's silliest days, it's mouth-puckeringly bitter and mean-spirited. Although the target of all this vitriol certainly deserves his share of shaming (if even a fraction of this one-sided story is to believed), seeing this collection of yes-men run him through the wringer is akin to a dogpile on the weird kid during recess. A few scattered segments bear ripe material, like Christian's re-enactment of one especially terrible promo, but Vince McMahon and his cronies are really reaching on most of these bits. Typically funny, enthusiastic guys like Chris Jericho and Bobby Heenan seem shy, quiet and a bit embarrassed to be participating. A curiosity on first viewing, in a "I can't believe they just did that" sense, but not remotely revealing, rewarding or entertaining.
