So much could have been but..
23 April 2015 | by TerryfanSee all my reviews

Now if you're a long time of the WWE then you will enjoy.

The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment is a special where we learn about how the World Wrestling Entertainment came to be.

Keith David provide the narration and he did help make the film interesting for any fan of Wrestling.

However the film itself just feels a mix of highs and lows as we explore the history of this legendary wrestling federation.

Now what I mean by that is that most of the stories in this program are pretty much ones we have heard about many times before like the history of Wrestlemania, The WCW vs WWF and many more.

It is cool to see Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Triple H, The Rock, Vince McMahon, Linda McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Chris Jericho, Jim Ross, Jerry "The King" Lawler, Bret "Hitman" Hart and Shawn Michaels among others sharing stories about the WWE.

Plus we get to see so many moments that had made the WWE what it is today as well as history you never knew before about the company.

But the problem with the movie is that they chose to talk about stories we had heard many times before only if you're new to wrestling you would understand it but it just with so much history you could have known about the WWE they didn't pick much to discuss.

It just not the same as you might have had hope for but it is still watchable just don't go in with high hopes.

I give The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment an 7 out of 10
