    What was everyones thoughts on it? I personally think it was one of the best I've seen. It's great to see appreciation for him, he's not as well known as he really should be the man is a pioneer of the sport.

    personally i thought it was one of the worst i've seen.

    honestly i thought it was going to be better. they should have showed the back and forth action that was in that fight between him and Enson. also the jeremy horn fight was pretty crazy. Frank looked mortal, and fatigued, but still managed to pull out the W.


    I think a Kevin Randleman documentary would be insane. guy was so damn athletic. he went through some serious shit. getting raped, bullied. he was fueled on pure emotion and energy.


    Frank is a legend, and although his commentary crew and tito/maurice did a good job of explaining how great he was they missed out on including a ton of footage.

    It was pretty bad. Had a pro wrestling feel and made Frank seem pretty flakey.

    I thought overall it came off pretty good.

    Frank has a huge ego and for him to allow himself to be exposed like that was quite surprising. I thought Frank would've made them paint him in a much better light then it actually did.

    Randleman has mentioned in interviews he was molested as a child. He's never gone into specifics, so the claim that he got raped might not be accurate.

    He never mentions who. but he gave a talk for this HS graduating class and he talked about being molested by this guy multiple times, and being tied up. pretty sure it falls into the rape category. he mentions being bullied and how he always thought it was his fault somehow, and there was something wrong with him.

    he had some deep psychological problems

    Honestly I was expecting more, but as a fan of both Shamrocks I liked it.

    Smashing machine is way better though.
