Sabu vs Terry Funk - ECW Born to be Wired [8/9/1997]
Deathmaches are always something that don’t necessarily interest me too often, but this infamous barbed wire death match is something that I’d consider to be required viewing. It’s not a great wrestling affair by any standard, but it show exactly how damn tough both of these guys are. The moment where Sabu gets his bicep sliced open, only to continue to wrestle after getting the wound super-glued shut is the stuff that only adds to Sabu’s legacy of being an absolute maniac.
I’d post the match, but it seems that Vince McMahon has a squad in charge of wiping the internet clean of footage like this for whatever reasons. Dirt sheets say that it’s because of Linda McMahon’s campaign for Senate or because of the footage conflicting with their current “PG” image — either way, it’s worth hunting it down on DVD and owning for yourself.
Beyond the Mat Advert 
When it comes to wrestling documentaries, this one is still the king. Even if the footage and the settings are all dated by now, there’s something completely honest about this look into the world of professional wrestling that’s STILL compelling to the viewer. I watched it again recently, and I had forgotten about how much of The Wrestler with Mickey Rourke takes from the real-life story of a broken down Jake “The Snake” Roberts.
It might still be on Netflix Instant, if you haven’t seen it. Great film.
