Ryan Payne Bell,
Marking Out is a comedic documentary that follows a group of grown men as they try to figure out why they can't seem to let go of professional wrestling. Travel with them as they meet with wrestlers (including EC3, Eric Young, and the stars of Chikara and Olde Wrestling) and wrestling fans in an attempt to either rekindle their love of the business or put it behind them forever.
The title is a professional wrestling slang term for reacting very enthusiastically to something in wrestling, comparable to fanboying or fangirling out, but specific to wrestling. It is derived from the term "mark," which is a term for fans that derives from carnival speak, which viewed the audience as "marks" ("suckers") who could be made to believe anything. While calling someone a mark can be meant as an insult, many wrestling fans will proudly declare themselves to be marks for particular wrestlers. See more »
Most entertaining documentary on professional wrestling I've ever seen!
Hilarious and constantly entertaining take on the ins and outs of being a professional wrestling fan, and what it means to these particular guys. My husband and I laughed throughout the entire film. Documentaries are tricky, because you run the risk of losing your viewer to boredom. There was no danger of this with "Marking Out." Information, background, and opinions struck a perfect harmony with humor and entertainment from beginning to end. I would recommend it to any current and/or former pro wrestling fan, as well as people who have never watched a match. Each would find something of value here. I hope there is more to come!
