Well my girlfriend certainly scored her points tonight! I occasionally go out looking for random and very obscure videos as well as classics, and there on the bottom of a shelf, she found this gem. The Wrestler (1974) Produced by Verne Gagne, The movie is about promoting the sport while gamblers, mobsters, unscrupulous wrestlers, money-grubbing promoters, and fixers conspire to corrupt the industry. If you have ever seen "The Spectacular Legacy of the AWA" DVD, (which I highly recommend) you might remember them briefly going over it. Wrestlers like: Don Muraco, Dusty Rhodes,Ric Flair, and Verne Gagne himself are in it. actually pretty much the whole AWA roster is in it somewhere, being part of the movie or wrestling clips. OH and acting in a small roll in the film is none other than Vincent Mcmahon himself! Pretty shocking I know. Especially with how Gagne and Mcmahon would butt heads just a decade or less later. Anyway If you haven't seen this movie and you are an old school wrestling fan, I highly suggest this movie to be seen at least once. Has anybody else seen this movie?
