Out this Tuesday, April 21 to anyone who wants to rent or buy it. The Best Buy here has the regular DVD for $16.99 and Blu-ray is $25.99. We had a Circuit City about half a mile away from Best Buy. Since they shut down, Best Buy's prices seem to have spiked upwards pretty sharply. No competition close by.......

I think I'll nab a copy of this one...don't buy too many current movies...focus mostly on buying 80's stuff or earlier classics....but I liked The Wrestler alot...so...I'm in. Many stores now are offering new releases for a much lower price on it's release date...a one day only sale...so I should be able to get it for $15 - $17.

did you guys see it yet? i have the movie but haven't watched since i saw it in the theater. it's one of those movies that i don't know if i can sit through again, because it haunted me after i saw it. i loved it so much though.

hope you guys like(d) it.

I've had the DVD for a while. It's a good movie, and, it's insightful about how wrestling works, but, it's depressing...

Depressing is correct. Typical plot summaries will take you on a roller coaster ride, with ups and downs throughout the movie.....this one is all....dowwwns....with one or two short lived moments where you think...only for a second...things are gonna get better....it didn't fit at the end when he won the lottery, got married, and moved next to Hulk Hogan's mansion in the Hills.....

Not just Randy Savage, the movie could have been about Lex Luger too. He's like 170 pounds nowf from what I heard.

I saw it in the theater when it came out and I liked it quite a bit. Haven't picked up the DVD yet. What are the extras like? Please tell me there is some alternate endings or something like that.
