Haven’t seen UK Takeover yet but just watched the Nigel doc and it’s damn good. Lots of footage from Nigel’s original self-financed doc, as well as ROH and TNA. Good stuff and so much more uplifting than the original doc, which was heart-breaking to watch and where I really thought Nigel could be a suicide risk. It’s great to see him in a better place and with a baby now and no longer bitter about how his career ended. In a lot of ways WWE basically made the sequel to the original doc and they should get the rights to that and upload it as well.

As an aside, it never ceases to amaze me how honest Daniel Bryan is and how willing WWE seems to be to air some of Bryan’s less flattering interviews about them. In this doc, Bryan comes right out and says that he never wanted to be in WWE, he liked the indies more, but he got to an age where he needed to make money so he took it (his point was in comparison to Nigel who always dreamed about wrestling in WWE and deserved to be there more). Pretty amazing that quote saw the light of day.
