5.0 out of 5 stars Good ole Brett... April 20 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Thanks again for the great price and service, guys. Everything was on time and in perfect order. Everything was first class! Always great to see Bret Hart bitching about his life! There is people like that: for him, the glass will always be half empty. Amen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest Documentary Oct. 28 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A very honest documentary about the events leading up to Bret Hart leaving the WWE. It is worth while watching to find out what happens behind the scenes in wrestling.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't tap out of corporate politics Sept. 16 2007
Format:DVD
This documentary chronicles the tumultuous end to Bret Hart's WWF/E career. Watch as a generally well regarded technical wrestler is forced out of the spotlight by the charismatic, fowl character of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and his brawl-style moves (including the stylish Stunner)! Watch as Titan struggles with a product that is seen as moldy and stale and replaces it with a hip and edgy style of programming (Unfortunately, the WWF's final triumph would be spurred by the events depicted in the end of the film, and thus that part of the story couldn't be fully developed)! Watch as Hart deftly exploits nationalist tendencies on the Canada/U.S. border by becoming a heel only in the U.S.! Watch as long-standing corporate loyalties and long-standing friendships are violently destroyed in front of millions of people! A must for wrestling fans, Canadian nationalists, marketing gurus, friends of workers rights (in and out of trade unionism), and documentary buffs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who screwed who? Sept. 1 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Just one comment, as far as the comment 'Bret screwed Bret' goes, many people are connecting that with his move to WCW. It wasn't a move that helped him, even he says WCW had no direction but lest we forget, Bret was TOLD by Vince to get the contract from them, as he couldn't honour the contract he was offered by the WWE. See that, he was TOLD by the man to do so.
It's pretty clear as to who was the bad guy and who screwed who and gues what?
He's not Canadian.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Respectable story in Wrestling History June 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
What a killer story. I can finally say I can not stand wrestling, I have lost all respect and love for wrestling ever since I picked up that god awful Ric Flair D.V.D, but one thing I can look back on and truly respect in Wrestling with Shadows it set the tone for the W.W.F in the late 90's and was the true death of repectable wrestling, its sad, humourous, smart, honost, the greatest behind the scenes documentary on wrestling ever it is even better then Beyond the Mat, and better yet the whole thing does not look cheesy, best of all Vince displays a shiner in the end could you ask for anything more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Sept. 17 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
THE GOOD
I'm not gonna go into the speel about what happens in the documentary. Many other reviewers have done it already. I'll say it's an interesting documentary especially since it gives an idea into one of the most nastiest incidents in the sport.(more on that later)
THE BAD
A little one sided as far as the screw-job goes and presenting it. But that I guess is to be expected since this is a documentary about Bret. Also it's edited wrong and events are out of sequence. The 10 man tag match in Calgary took place in July of 97 a month before Bret fought the Undertker for the title and in the middle of Bret's anti-american angle(the survival of the fittest comment by wrestler Animal was him saying that the match wasn't about Canada vs the U.S) Bret's anti-American tirade happened the night after he wrestled Austin and before Austin attacked him in the ambulance.
Final thought's
Did the wwf/wwe screw Bret or did Bret screw himself? From the looks of it the answer seems to be the latter. When he went to WCW he went from being one of the top wrestlers to the hightest paid mid-carder in history and to quote Mick Foley's biography "WCW couldn't make Bret a star even though he was already one."
