Leave it to professional wrestling to find a way to make the documentary format beautifully absurd. Enter Nine Legends, the latest from Bloodstained Memoirs director David Sinnott that looks at the lives and careers of, yes, nine legends of pro wrestling in their own words. Featuring exclusive interviews with Bill Goldberg, Bret Hart, Chris Jericho, Dynamite Kid, Amy Dumas, Rob Van Dam, Ted Dibiase, Randy Couture, and Mike Tyson (who announced the movie on his Facebook page yesterday), it sounds straightforward enough. Except, for some reason, and we’re not complaining, it has a science fiction frame. It’s the year 2050 and a young wrestling fan is less than thrilled to be spending the night at his Grandfather’s house. That is until he learns that his Grandfather once travelled the world interviewing some of the biggest wrestling stars of all time. In case your Saturday night could use more muscular, oiled spice, you can watch the trailer here.
Nine Legends is streaming on the official site for $5.
