It's STILL real to me....darn it!
22 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not quite sure if the goal was to celebrate pro wrestling for the art form that it is, or discredit it. If the latter, it failed since Pro Wrestling still thrives.

I think the producers were getting tired of the whole exposing Magic's Big Secrets and were looking for something else fun to spoil.

As a former pro wrestler myself, I can say a few things inconsistent with the documentary. First, the ring. Under the canvas it is indeed padded, but no more than maybe 2 inches of padding. The documentary makes it look like your jumping around on a sleep-number mattress. The padding helps, but it is still wood and steel underneath. Does it hurt? Not really. But landing wrong can knock the wind out of ya.

Second is the mic under the ring. This may be a technique done in large scale arenas by WWE, and at the time WCW. But on an indy circuit, as a fan, a member of the ring crew, and as a performer myself, I never noticed any microphone.

I didn't also care for the negative words like con, scam, etc. Pro Wrestling is just like going to see a magic show. You suspend disbelief and allow yourself to get caught up in the moment.
