Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that like the WWF shows, this movie is violent and profane. Unlike the WWF shows, this is the truth, and scenes showing Jake with his estranged father and daughter and Mick's wife and children horrified by a fight may be far more upsetting than the fights themselves.

Sexual Content

Some sexual references.


Lots of wrestling mayhem, bloody and violent.


Very strong language.

Social Behavior
