Storyline

Hard Knocks is a 40 minute documentary short on Professional Wrestling - an industry largely misunderstood by the general public and an industry that has been victim of ridicule time and time again. Over the past few years in particular, the professional wrestling world has been thrust into complete turmoil after the deceiving and biased portrayal of certain events by the national media. The deaths of top wrestlers in their prime as well as numerous steroid scandals have been used to kick the industry when it's down. Hard Knocks dives deep into this bizarre fusion of sport and theatre in order to uncover the true art of professional wrestling; blending combat and athleticism with drama and showmanship to captivate the minds of the audience, suspending any disbelief that what they are seeing is not real.

Short Review: Hard Knock's is a well made documentary and while not as impressive as Beyond the Mat it is enjoyable to watch and I would recommend it to anyone as although it's a British video, the story is the same across North America. I would have liked for the documentary to run longer than it did and felt I wanted more so with it coming in at just 40 minutes I did find myself hit the repeat button straight away because I wanted to see it again.

If your interested in a behind the scenes look at wrestling that isn't a WWE or TNA production then this is something I would suggest you check out.
