10 Things We Learned From The FCW Documentary

Started from the bottom now we're here. The recent documentary by WWE is well worth a watch.

There is a new documentary on the WWE Network, and it seems to have come out of nowhere. A Future WWE: The FCW Story details the rise and fall of the last third-party training promotion WWE had used to develop talent for their main roster.

The documentary covers a lot of different topics - from the moving of trainees to Florida to the frustrations felt by some of the talent for not making the jump to main roster sooner - and spanning almost an hour and a half, it is the best documentary WWE has produced in some time.

Many of the wrestlers and staff interviewed appear genuinely nostalgic when discussing the developmental territory, and it raises the question of why FCW has never really received much of a mention on WWE programming before.

Featuring comments from such alumni as Steve ‘Skinner’ Keirn, Dr Tom Prichard, Big E, Charlotte Flair, and Brie and Nikki Bella, this is an exceptional documentary on Florida Championship Wrestling, how it came to be, and its lasting legacy.
