The Last Ride, the WWE Network’s recent five-part documentary about The Undertaker, was one of the best bits of original content the company has ever broadcast. Undertaker, a.k.a Mark Calaway, is one of the few old school wrestlers left, and if he doesn’t subscribe fully to kayfabe, he’s not far off - he’s certainly not the type to let just anyone behind the curtain.
The fascinating series was a great insight into the Undertaker character as well as Calaway as a man - and in light of its success, WWE will surely be looking to give the same treatment to some of their other talents.
Most fascinating of all were the interviews with Calaway himself - he was unflinchingly honest about both his triumphs and failures. As such your subject needs to be someone willing to get into it, whose focus is on the product, not self-promotion (so one Terry Bollea has been taken out of contention).
Pretty much everyone gets a little documentary special, but the full series treatment only goes to the very worthy. These superstars have the presence and the pedigree to make for unmissable content...
