DailyView: Day 276, Movie 388
No matter what your opinion on the WWE may be, you cannot deny that they know how to put together compelling documentaries about their Superstars.
Tommaso Ciampa is one of the biggest stars to come out of NXT, a developmental organization of the WWE, and he was the NXT Champion when he had to have neck surgery, missing out on Wrestlemania weekend.
This becomes the story of a pro wrestler who had to face a devastating injury that stopped his momentum dead and the struggle to come to grips about what this meant for his career and his family.
There are scenes of his neck fusion surgery and they spoke to plenty of his friends, colleagues and family. We heard from Triple H, Johnny Gargano, Shawn Michaels, Edge, as well as plenty from Tommaso himself. These are interviews that truly brought the passion of the man to the forefront.
The doc talks a great deal about Tommaso’s baby daughter, Willow, and the way she came to be. It was an emotional tale and added to the entire situation of the injury that flipped his world. She was so cute and the pictures of Willow were absolutely fabulous.
Tommaso Ciampa is one of my personal favorite performers and this slice of his life during such a tumultuous time is wonderful. The WWE documentaries hit it again.
