To check out the Wrestling With Disaster trailer:
All too often we watch Professional Wrestling and forget that the wrestlers in the ring are actually people. We fail to realize that these superhero-like titans have real lives, friends, interests and families outside of the wrestling business. They have the same trials and tribulations that we all do. However, their issues can be even worse b/c they are under constant pressure to perform in front of a worldwide audience. Pro Wrestling is a strange industry with deep rooted comradely, but true friendships are often few and far between leaving some performers empty inside after the final bell rings. This is one of the many things that becomes a challenge for those involved.
Just as in any walk of life, some people will fail and some will flourish! Join us for Wrestling With Disaster as we get inside the minds of some of your favorite stars from the past, present and future. Nothing is held back as we speak to many well known stars such as Kevin Sullivan, Warlord, Fred "Tugboat/Typhoon" Ottman, DLo Brown, "Headbanger Thrasher" Glen Ruth, The Blue Meanie and many more!
One of the most gripping scenes in Wrestling With Disaster unfolded as we followed "The Genius" Lanny Poffo who is the brother of the late "Macho Man" Randy Savage to the tree where Randy died. The raw emotion continued as Lanny read us a poem he penned for his brother and spoke about the last conversation he had with him the night before he died.
