Adnois had pretty much brought Piper up in the wrestling world. He chews a tiny, twinkling toothpick. We spent more than a year researching that story. It was one year of pitching it and then two years of going out there and creating the series. It makes a great spectacle, this show.

It was asking a lot of them to open up about their loved ones who they lost tragically. But many choose to be persuaded by its magnificence. What other topics would you like to cover if the series can continue? Then on Sunday, The Rock talked about how much the show affected him and how much he appreciated it. Below is the full six-episode lineup. He said he had wished he was interviewed for the show. Bret Hart contributes Brody to putting him over to the rest of the locker room.

Around these gifted performers, these godlike men with their huge and brilliantly crude personas, spreads the American public at its most medieval, its most pageantry-besotted and morally inflamed. Brody was the one who spoke highly of his talents. From backstage controversies to mysterious deaths and unsolved homicides, this series explores the darkest stories from the golden age of professional wrestling, and tries to find truth at the intersection of fantasy and reality. We quickly realized they had incredible stories to share. Work or shoot, you keep it going. Did the handsome Gino Hernandez—imagine with muscles—overdose, or was he murdered by drug people? Hall—whose eventful life could comfortably fill another six episodes—from time to time drops his voice into a kind of thunderbolt-tossing growl.

We got really wrapped in doing that project and was more or less our pilot episode. I think there are so many YouTube shoot videos and short documentaries that people are making content. At the time, we were obsessed with what happened in the life of Bruiser Brody, which will be the third episode that airs on April 24. Also Read: So that was a big one they got out of the way early — but not every wrestling legend has tribute players. What I found in talking with them and from finding out about how big of fans we were and appreciated them like artists, the family members saw we wanted to do justice for their loved ones. It was a weird mixed message to the audience. There were other ones as well.

Adrian Adonis was best friends with Roddy Piper. That is such a tragic story of a wrestler who was killed in Montreal. We shot approximately 75 percent of a seventh episode on the story of Dino Bravo. That to me is what makes wrestling the most interesting for art form on the planet, especially during that time as the wrestlers were so protective of the business. It was probably three years in the making. There are so many stories that we would love to dive into. Startling new revelations are revealed to his still grieving mother.

The Montreal Screwjob

We found what was so cool was the reenactments that are stylized and done in slow motion. They had lived their characters into their everyday lives. So when someone like The Rock validates the work, it helps to make it all worthwhile. We would do that by spending time with them so they knew we were fans and we appreciated everything they did in such a way and respect for what they do. Another is The Brawl for All tournament that took place in the summer of 1998. Why did they provide such resistance to you guys? They were also pretty creative when it came to more normal-sized men and women. How could they ever hope to be ordinary, these people, to have ordinary existences? And we ended up bonding over our love of the pro wrestling business.

Bret felt like he was a kid who had to prove himself. Wrestling is such a treasure that deserves to be protected and be shared. I can see those guys navigating those wrestling docs and maybe have some they are working on as well. We wanted to get their stories told before it was too late. Kayfabe died a long time ago, which is to say that everyone is in on the secret of professional wrestling — and the wrestlers themselves no longer pretend otherwise. I grew up as such a fan of his and getting that validation from him means the world. That story has always lived with us.
