Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I'll go ahead and say it; A well done, thorough BORK documentary now has the potential to be better than Punk's BITW documentary, if the WWE are willing to make some sacrifices. The timeline of his career would be absolutely insane.
His amateur wrestling days - His rise to the top during high school and eventually winning the NCAA Wrestling Championship in 2000, after a heatbreaking second place in 1999. Get Shelton Benjamin to talk about that, as he helped coach Lesnar and was his room mate at University. Maybe get some teachers, then girlfriends, school friends etc. to talk about him.
Obviously then his first run - Still have Shelton, as they teamed up in OVW. Have Heyman and MAYBE Cornette and/or Danny Davis who helped train Lesnar in OVW. Then transition in to being called up to the main roster, have the likes of Rey Mysterio, Big Show, The Rock, John Cena etc. all giving their insight in to Lesnar's first run. Throw Vince in there maybe, hell even Zach Gowen, that would be cool. Then talk a little bit about his stint in NJPW because he couldn't make it in to Professional Football. Bring in JR and then some American footballing names/analysts, and then go in to a bit of detail about the lawsuit between Lesnar and the WWE with the no compete clause.
Then move to MMA. Imagine having someone like Dana White, Frank Mir, Randy Couture or even Joe Rogan talking about Lesnar and his meteoric rise to the top of MMA and draw parallels to his rise in wrestling; Amateur and Professional alike. Then slowly move in to his downfall - His illnesses etc. and the eventual retirement after his loss to Alistair Overeem.
Then bring it back to the WWE and his second run and whatever. Blah blah blah.
On top of this, you could break up these segments of the doc with little tidbits about his growing up on a farm and the subsequent "farm strength" that he has and how that has helped him in his career. His personal life, his fame, his natural athleticism etc.
With the right speakers and the right matches, a Bork DVD would be epic. That's what im trying to say.
