I fondly remember seeing Beyond the Mat in theaters. It would be a great companion piece to The Wrestler. I never thought I would get teary eyed watching grown men romping around in tights but both of these movies are very emotional. Whether you enjoyed The Wrester or not check out Beyond the Mat.

I think everyone here knows how I feel about The Wrestler and if you don't then I suggest you hit up this page and this page.

It's decent, but far too sympathetic to the wrestlers, most of the problems they face in Beyond The Mat they incurred through their own actions. Plus, Jake Roberts is the opposite of Randy Robinson in that he is a completely detestable human being without the ability to garner an ounce of sympathy from any rational thinking viewer.

Jake's whole story is creepy/depressing as hell.

I do not like your new avatar. How about The Brain from Pinky and the Brain to match your quote?

Or is that "time to take over the world"?
