      DVD arrived yesterday in little old Jersey Channel Islands. Watched today. Superb work. No only should you be proud of what you've achieved, you should be proud of an honest heartfelt documentary. Thank you for doing it. Thanks for everything.

      received my dvd and photo on saturday and finally was able to watch it last night. Great job :)

      I received the DVD and the picture, and I cannot believe the quality of the DVD. It's designed perfectly and looks like something done by a massive company with a multi-million dollar budget. You are a champ, mate. I wish you all the best.

      Oops, I must have missed the first screening, glad to hear you are doing another soon. Niall

      Hey Nigel,

      Never saw anything on vimeo other than the trailer? Any chance for a replay?

    11. Nick Flight on December 4, 2012

      Wow Nigel! Just saw the documentary, absolutely brilliant. You are not just an amazing wrestler but an amazing film-maker too. I will gladly contribute to any future projects you put on Kickstarter. Thank you for letting us into your world in such an honest, genuine and intimate way. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next chapter brings for you.

      Very good point Brian; I didn't even think about that.

      I would think that only people who selected the photo only option got their photos now? Multiple shipping on one reward seems excessive

      Matt Freeman on September 5, 2012

      Like Eric, I didn't get my photo. I'm not hugely bothered about it and this certainly isn't a complaint - it's just that if my contact information is wrong or something I'd obviously like to get that sorted out to make sure I receive the DVD when it's out. Thanks.

      Were we supposed to all have our photos by now? I never got mine and I don't mind waiting I just want to make sure I wasn't missed. Incredibly excited about the project!

    27. Matt Tozer on May 6, 2012

      I agree, the photo is awesome...

    28. Orlando on May 5, 2012
