An Overconfident Scale Glosses Over Many Details
23 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, FL) – See all my reviews

This had the potential to be a really insightful glimpse into the deep personal risks Vince McMahon took in launching the first world-scale wrestling show, as well as the dozens of twists, turns and tidbits of backstage drama that transpired at each subsequent event. Instead, the narration merely grazed the surface of those untold stories before leaning back into a gentle, easygoing fluff piece. The few peeks we get behind the curtains, like Mean Gene cracking up in an interview with William "Refrigerator" Perry or Vince critiquing the art direction during the WMIX build, were my favorite bits. That's the kind of stuff I really wanted to see, not another recap of the wrestlers' favorite main events and some classic lessons in revisionist history. This may have been better served as the story of the first ten (maybe even five) WrestleManias, too, as trying to cram commentary on twenty-five different events results in a monotonous pace and forced ignorance of several legendary moments in the show's dazzling history.
