The Viceland Wrestling Documentaries


Recommended Posts

I just need an episode on people whose asses Vince hilariously thought he'd be able to kick.  I know there's Harley Race and Frank Shamrock.  There must be more.  Adjacent to that is tough guy Vince telling Bret he'd get one free shot, and then Bret proceeding to K him TFO.

Well Chris Colt explains the spiders climbing over the cage

Quote

An infamous incident took place in Phoenix in 1975, when Colt was wrestling inside a steel cage. Before the match, Colt had injested the drug peyote, and this caused Colt to climb into the ring high, hallucinating spiders all over the structure. He panicked and started brawling with fans and security as he fled the arena. Due to Colt's drug issues, he was said to never work sober, but promoters saw no issue as he could still draw heat from the audience.

In 1986, Harris wrapped up his career in Alabama as the neo-nazi Chris von Colt, but continued to compete until the following year for Pacific Northwest Wrestling. Once wrestling was over, Colt, who was openly gay, starred in gay porn movies (e.g. “Sex Aggression: Jack Husky’s First Night At Chris Colt’s Wrestling Academy”) and was rumored to have become a born-again Christian in the 90s.

Sandman episode, fuck yeah, there better be a re-enactment of what Sandman thought he was seeing while wrestling Sabu while high on hallucinogenics at November to Remember 97 in what of the greatest train wreck matches ever.

In my upcoming ECW history book, I talk about sitting in the crowd watching this match, wondering if it was good or bad.

One of the few times where the answer to an "either/or" question actually is YES.

That's a spoiler! Okay, here you go:

When I was in the crowd, I was asking myself, "Is this a good match?" Nearly every move was a crazy dive involving a ladder or table, and only half of the moves landed properly. It was like eating a six-course meal, with every course being cake, and only three of the cakes were good.

Sabu vs. The Sandbag at ECW November 2 Remember 1997 is one of the worst matches I've ever seen. The two redeemed themselves in Stairway to Hell at ECW House Party 1998. Sabu broke his jaw but taped it up to continue the match as you do.

I'm keeping that autocorrect in.

Unless there’s some bear porno out there that I really don’t want to know about

I'll forever stand by the Stairway to Hell match. The shot of Hak standing there with his eyes closed, leaning against the ropes in agony, covered in blood with barbed wire encircling his head, actively upset/grossed-out the ECW mutants. Which was nigh impossible to do. I think it even got Joey to emit this quiet, Owen voice "Oh my god." It ends with somebody getting nailed in their broken jaw with a full on kendo stick shot. Doesn't get more final than that, does it?

Pretty sure that one or both of Angle and Lesnar tied Vince up in knots and/or launched him into the stratosphere.

Dude murdered Damian.

Correction: Quake hunted an animal for food. What was he going to do, make his Quakeburgers out of ground beef that was easily bought at a supermarket? The man was hungry! Starving, even!

I don’t think of Tenta having a dark side kind of story other than dying young. 

He exposed the business by revealing that he was a man and not a shark on a 1996 episode of Nitro.

Apparently Chris Adams is also on this season which should be wild as hell.  

This Chris Colt one is going to the most talked about one because of how insane his life was and how little people know of it

To be fair, I would say unfortunately "we" were all a part of that segment. We will never escape the trauma.

Tenta feels kind of like a Magnum TA-ish episode to where there is an interesting life wrapped in tragedy, and that is the darkness rather than "here's someone who did a bunch of drugs"/"here's a guy that committed a bunch of terrible acts". Tenta was in sumo, trained with All Japan, had a pretty major run with the WWF, had the incident with Kitao, was with WCW right as the NWO started, and died very young.

That's a good life for an hour long documentary, but where else would you do it?

Exactly. IMO That's kinda of the issue with the latter in that if you don't do a series or a longer standalone profile like Chyna had, how do you properly cover everything in 43-45 minutes? You cannot without moving timelines like we've seen with a bunch of episodes. If you can properly condense some of these careers in that length of time and then somehow provide great context of something that may have went wrong, it probably wasn't that great a career to begin with.
