Well we did it guys and gals with your help we have made our funding goal in record time. There is still time left for others to find out and give to this project as well so please spread the word and lets keep this thing rolling. With the funding going over the needed goal to finish this documentary we are left with the question what should we do if the funding continues to grow? Del and I have been discussing this but also want your feedback. We can add a third disc or try to interview Bret Hart. We also have kicked around the idea of maybe doing a premiere in Del's hometown of Columbia, SC. What do you guys want it is just as much your film as it is ours.
To show the progress we have made here is the first 3 minutes of the documentary. Enjoy this but we still need YOUR HELP to finish the final product. We still have several interviews to gather and many other things to make this an epic documentary.
This is the story of Del "The Patriot" Wilkes an All-American Collegiate Football star at the University of South Carolina and international wrestling Star. The story of Del's life is one of dreams and hopes that came true and a story of falling from grace due to the life on the road that he chose to live. From getting into the pitfalls of prescription drugs to the point he was sentenced to prison for 9 months and now he is telling his story of success, failure, and redemption in this documentary.
We are hoping to raise funds to make a 2 disc DVD set that covers everything wrestling, football, and life now for The Patriot. No punches are held back as this is a look not just at what happened between the ropes but life on the road. Del only speaks for himself and the situations that his choices led him to be in. We have already produced the documentary but again we need YOUR HELP to make Del’s story a reality.

Risks and challenges
The risk is asking to make the DVDs aka the final product with you guys. We have a track record of producing award winning wrestling documentaries and using kickstarter as a tool to produce them. This time around we took the risk so to speak by paying for all production of the documentary; it is a completed documentary we are just now asking you to help us make the final 2 disc set.
The challenge is getting the word out there and if you contribute please share the link to this page as much as possible until the deadline is up. We are small time and not a major company most of the time it is just one guy me typing this up who is doing all the legwork on these docs. So we need your help getting the word and getting backers to make this a reality for one of the true good guys in the wrestling business.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
