BEHIND THE ROPES IS THE FIRST-EVER DOCUMENTARY TO DELVE INTO THE POSITIVE COMMUNITY AND REAL LIFE RELATIONSHIPS OF PRO-WRESTLING.
New York, NY – August 27, 2013 – Pro-Wrestling fans are tired of documentaries meant to expose whether pro-wrestling is “fake” and documentaries that sensationalize the drama and the “grudges.” True fans of pro-wrestling know it’s not about factions and animosity, pro-wrestling is about community and brotherhood. To give the fans what they want, The It Factor Productions and EPCW Heavyweight Champion Andrew “The Reinforcer” Anderson will be turning to Kickstarter to finalize funding for Behind the Ropes: The Greatest Fraternity in the World.
“Never has any film shown the inner workings and friendship, the true bond we all share in this amazing sport” – WWE Hall of Famer Tito Santana
Behind the Ropes is not about the matches, not about the grudges, not about the glitz and glamour, but about the true life story of the families and the friendships formed behind the ropes. The documentary will take you on a journey with the greatest stars of wrestling and one man’s path to becoming ECPW’s current heavyweight champion, Andrew “The Reinforcer” Anderson. Filming has already included such big names as Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, Brutus the Barber Beefcake, The Boogeyman in a rare out of make-up interview along with dozens of other legendary wrestlers and industry insiders such as journalist and writer Bill Apter along with upcoming and future superstars of the indie circuit.
This documentary has been a long time coming, but bigger studios, worrying about their bottom line, doubted the interest in a positive take on pro-wrestling. After repeatedly seeing the interest from fans and fellow pro-wrestlers, Andrew Anderson decided to take the project to independent film Production Company, The It Factor Productions and Kickstarter, where fans can become a part of making the documentary themselves. One launched the Kickstarter campaign will allow fans access to on location interviews and private VIP access to screenings and backstage access to events along with one of a kind pieces such as exclusive autograph’s to supporters.
“This is about the brotherhood of wrestling, any wrestling fan is going to enjoy this film” – WWE Hall of Famer Greg the Hammer Valentine
