> Hey Scott,
> Long time blah blah. I've been filming MMA documentaries since 1999. Along the way I've encountered all kinds of stories. For the last year, I've been trying to tell the most bizarre one of all. We're almost done, we just need a little help getting there.
> BTW, if all you ever review is old WWE Network PPV's, I'd still read.

Well, let's hope it doesn't come to that. Good luck!

From: "David Montgomery" Thought I'd pass it along, there's an upcoming documentary from the director of "Hoop Dreams" (considered to be one of the best documentaries ever, if not THE best) called "Head Games", which chronicles Chris Nowinski's quest to bring to light the issues of concussions in sports, esp. for young athletes. The first trailer was just released: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1r_e4dkyBgo
A fantastic documentary aired tonight in the UK on Channel 4 called The Wrestlers: Fighting With My Family. It’s about a family who own a small wrestling promotion and academy.
The family’s daughter is FCW/NXT wrestler Paige, and shows her rise from wrestling in front of a few dozen people for her father’s promotion, to getting invited for a WWE trial all the way to moving out to the states and debuting in FCW. It also shows the family’s son and his struggle to achieve the same success as his sister. He has had a few WWE tryouts but was said to be underweight, although he did appear on Smackdown in a squash against Big Show.
It’s well worth watching and can be watched online at the following link:
Unsure if it can be accessed in Canada or US, if not its worth hunting for on youtube.
Am I wrong in considering Hollywood & Vine to be one of the great tag teams of the 80’s?
I can safely say yes. Although really this documentary looks so softball that they probably won’t even question the motives of David McLane, probably because he had to sign off on it to get it made. Still, might be fun, who knows.
