The Wrestlers episode on death matches was interesting. It was weird to see Jun Kasai's family who are completely normal people who just accept this is what he chooses to do for a living. And I think his mom thinks wrestling is real from what she said during his match. Also Onita hanging out at the bar was cool.

I wish there were more than four episodes because that's some fascinating viewing right there. The 3rd episode in particular affected me, probably because I've always been such a Joshi fan.

The Dino Bravo one should be interesting.

Benoit, meh. There's nothing wrong with doing an ep on him because his is the most infamous story in wrestling, but we've seen/heard/read everything about it already.

Yea I heard they were making a Dino one a while back. I'd be interested in seeing docs on

- Dynamite Kid
- New Jack
- Vince WWF steroid trial
- Brian Pillman and about Brian Jr being a wrestler now
- Gentleman Chris Adams

Chris Benoit has been covered a lot but they managed to make the Von Erich doc interesting when their story has been covered heavily too. Plus it'll likely be the best rated episode of the season and they need ones like that so they'll get renewed for a third season.

The Adams one would be one of the darkest episodes they'd do. That guy was a horrible human being due to his alcohol and cocaine addiction. And he had a Luger/Liz situation with his girlfriend dying, and then his best friend had to murder him in self defense shortly afterwards.
