I don't watch wrestling but I do enjoy wrestling docs. There was that competition show on MTV back in the day too where people would train to be WWE stars. Basically anything behind the scenes about wrestling I enjoy way more than actual wrestling. As Noah said in his intro for this though, most wrestling docs are total bummers. This one has a bit of heart though, since it's not only about Candadian Luchadore superstar Vampiro but also his daughter and their relationship. It's mostly usual stuff: history, height of fame, drug use, career highlights, what's he doing now, etc.; but he's very charismatic and candid which makes for good viewing.
He was in the theater; this was his first time to see the film. His repsonse: I didn't do THAT many drugs. His Q&A was great... very positive attitude. He even called out Noah for missing a guy who had his hand up for a while. "That's Vampiro coming out." Good stuff.
