    Let me say that for a portion of my life you could consider me as an insider when it comes to professional wrestling. This movie is the most accurate depiction of the real life people behind the characters of wrestling. A great piece of work.

    For those who thought this film was boring and without "substance,"---look in the mirror. Clearly one of the best films of last year, and with acting of the highest caliber. The only problem I had with the movie was the wrestling scenes were difficult to watch. The destruction of those men for a piddling amount of money--though voluntary--is a grim reality I would rather do without.

    A lot of dept to this film. I could relate to an aging professional and the hardache of life. Very good story.
