Quotes

This was great. I thought the style of narration was unique, the skits were terrific and Landis' summaries of the various eras of HHH were laser accurate.

I also thought that the actors did a pretty creditable job of portraying the Wrestlers (particularly The Rock, Stone Cold and Sean Michaels.

There is *so* much good here if you are already a fan of wrestling, and I'm told it's pretty great even if you are not. Landis' enthusiasm for the medium shines.

I really valued when he admitted that "yes, a lot of wrestling is crap" (because that's pretty inarguable), but he followed it with the equally true "But when it's good, it's f***ing *great*" I have to agree.
