    Not bad for a lanky, goggle-eyed freak.

    Why do these Off Camera videos have such low view counts?? They’re such amazing interviews.

      It's a bit of a niche I would guess, and we are part of those smart people who found and enjoy them, and soooo lucky we did !!!!

    "The fact they happened to be wrestlers was almost irrelevant."
    Because professional wrestling is, at its core, another form of storytelling. Professional wrestlers are storytellers. You might snicker or gag at some of the stories they tell, but the dream and the journey of someone who wants to tell stories will always be relatable.

      @TrainInVain Lmao, I'm glad you left this comment because as a wrestling fan who is an adult, I've been trying to wrap my head around the way people like you think about it, is your thought process one of just sheer ignorance and lack of understanding of the pro wrestling world therefore you can't appreciate and respect it? Are you one of these people these people that want to jump on the "let's mock wrestling fans" bandwagon which (this group) actually amuses me and makes me feel sorry for them more than anything else because they will turn around and mock wrestling fans and then be into something equally as geekish (for lack of a better word) or they'll say watch a real sport like football/soccer (which is nowhere near as physically or mentally demanding as wrestling is) or do you just not care about it, which is fair enough but then as you just did add in a "should be publicly flogged" which is either tongue in cheek (which I don't mind) or your being serious in which case their was no need for it at all. I'm genuinely curious to know which group you fall under?

      Stories for children. Any adult who watches wrestling should be publicly flogged.
