I sat back last night and watched the 2 hours plus documentary on the illustrious career of Vincent Kennedy McMahon. Now as a wrestling fan I loved the breakdown of his story and the reasoning behind some of his infamous decisions, but this documentary will appeal to almost anyone. Watching a 60 year-old multi-billionaire battle and bleed in the ring on numerous occasions when in reality he should be sat in a pool, on a yacht or playing golf somewhere. Watching him push himself to the limit, make outlandish remarks and consistently answer his critics is enough to keep you entertained but more seriously there is a point in the DVD that you start to think "Man, this guy really is insane".
McMahon changed wrestling forever. He completely revolutionised the industry and has took it further than anyone could ever imagine. He has built careers, created superstars and branched out into other forms of media and entertainment. There is no doubting McMahon is a business genius. Then you hear his 'storyline' ideas for the WWE, you hear how he fires people, how he struggles to decipher between himself and his character - 'Mr McMahon'. There is constant balance of what you could only call good and evil. The cover represents this best with the two faces, split down the centre.
The extras consist of some brutal matches and further more stories about Vince and his employees. On the whole the DVD package is well worth a watch and you'll come away from it feeling slightly shocked yet satisfied that even the richest, shrewdest, well dressed business man may be searching for his sanity just like the rest of us.
