Life in the Fast Lane Documentary
Item Number: 00001
Professional wrestling can be looked in many different ways. In one regard, it is an old school boy's club full of incredible athletes performing death defying stunts and maneuvers. Many see it as a traveling circus with men who go from town to town performing in front of thousands every night. Whatever your personal take on wrestling is, the sport has created some of the most charismatic and interesting people in entertainment. While spending the majority of their days traveling, wrestlers have seen the world in a way very few people have and the staff at RF VIDEO have been trying for months to figure out a unique way in to get that road experience across to our viewers. It may sound odd, but sometimes being in the ring for 20 minutes doesn't come close to equaling the experience of traveling 400 miles to get there.
Using RF VIDEO's extensive library, we have created our first ever documentary entitled "Life In The Fast Lane." In one DVD you will get story after story from some of the biggest talents in the business telling you exactly what it is like to live in the meat grinder that is known as professional wrestling. From "Hot Rod" Rowdy Roddy Piper going to jail, to The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels given his walking papers, this DVD is jam packed full of interesting stories and powerful anecdotes from some of the greatest legends in the industry.
Here is a sample of the Hall Of Fame talent involved in this exciting new project!
Rowdy Roddy Piper
Honky Tonk Man
Billy Jack Haynes
…and so many more!
In addition to the main feature tackling what it is like on the road in the major leagues of wrestling, we are also adding in exclusive backstage footage shot at a live wrestling show in order to show life from the perspective of an indy wrestler.
To go along with the Life In The Fast Lane dvd is our exclusive Cutting Room Floor Bonus DVD. It includes 12 additional stories that didn't make the documentary.
Abdullah The Butcher
Rey Mysterio Jr.
In addition to that are 3 Matches!
Jake Roberts vs The Sandman
Low-Ki vs Eddy Guerrero
and Super Crazy vs Tajiri's final match in the states.
On top of that we have included a Pipers Pit from Texas with guest Kevin Von Erich.
Great Look at Life on the Road

This is quite possibly the best wrestling DVDs I have ever seen. Obviously rfvideo has the unique access to interviews no one else can offer and they do an excellent job here of showing the fans what the life of a professional wrestler is really like.
I watch this at least once a week and it is always entertaining. The bonus features are great because they include about an hour of interviews that just didn't fit into the format of the main feature. I don't think any wrestling fan would be disappointed with this title. Very good job to all of the rfvideo staff. Please make a volume 2.

I enjoyed every moment of this release; listening to all the various stories was just too cool. The bonus features are a nice treat, with my personal favorite being the Sid Vicious piece.

If you're debating on whether or not to purchase this documentary, take my word for it and check it out; the purpose of the documentary is to accurately portray the life that a wrestler has to live, and this portrayal was due in part to bits and pieces of assorted shoot interviews from stars of yesterday and today.
This documentary does a good job of stressing how hectic of both a traveling and day-to-day schedule that the wrestlers endure, but also has a comedic side to it with a number of interviewees discussing stories about ribs backstage and on the road.
I think that the documentary has a phenomenal conclusion to it, and you will know exactly what I'm talking about once you watch it. Watching this documentary will not only increase your level of respect for the men and women that entertain you 300 days out of the year, but also make you feel the urge to check out the shoot interviews in their entirety with certain wrestlers (i.e. Tully Blanchard).
A must see

I really liked this, and it was well made. In my opinion this is 100% than 101 reasons not to be a Pro-Wrestler. After seeing the Super Crazy Tajiri segment I am really excited for their OTR to be released on DVD.
