I had heard about this masterpiece but had never seen it. Another great time capsule of kayfabe. This along with The Wrestler and I Like to Hurt People all came out around the same time.

I had originally thought it was some corny story about an up and coming lady wrestler but it was the opposite. It was done documentary style. Vivian Vachon had so much charisma.. Maria Laverne as well. A big who's who of wrestlers of the day including Maurice and Paul Vachon. Blackjack Mulligan, Jean Ferre, Killer Kowalski, Bill Watts, Danny Hodge and tons more. They showed huge chunks of matches including a really good one between Ferre and Kowalski. Vivian had two matches that were almost complete against Kay Noble and Maria Laverne. Both were fantastic.

It was very chilling when they interviewed Grizzly Smith. He really had an evil vibe to him. They spent alot of time interviewing Southern rasslin' fans of the early 70's and it was everything you would expect it to be. Instead of watching Pornhub for an hour watch this. You won't be disappointed.

This movie was seriously one of the holey grails when I was a kid and an AWA fan in the 1980's, then when I got on the net, even more. But the streaming then was primitive. I saw it for the first time around around 2009. Sure it was dated, but it didn't disappoint.

Really eh? There was a copy of this on all the video store shelves back in the day here. I've had a copy of it for a couple of decades at least. Had no idea it was a hard to find item.

I'm not sure I looked all that hard for it as I thought it was a "movie" movie about a plucky girl who despite unbeatable odds made her way to the top of the wrestling racket. I was very surprised when I watched it the other night that it was the complete opposite of that

Same. This and “I Like To Hurt People” were all over my local video store. I rented it when I was very young but want to watch it again now.

Is the little blonde kid Steve Nelson who went on to freestyle wrestling and early forms of MMA, someone Vinnie Mac even sponsored for a time?

The Stomper teaming with Dale Lewis against Hodge and Watts is the recently-deceased John Quinn FYI.
