    As both, a pro wrestling fan and film buff, this was one of my most anticipated films of the year. I've been deep into the tragic story of the Von Erich family for years but perhaps that was my undoing.

    Some pretty visuals and some intriguing stories. That's about it.

    Also the fact that the main character is working for Amazon is fucking hilarious considering what the rest of the film shows
