Those interviewed include Rhodes and his wife Brandi, Paul Levesque, The Undertaker, Ric Flair, and Kevin Owens.  

Rhodes began his involvement with the wrestling industry working on his father Dusty Rhodes’ Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling cards in the early 2000s and reported to Ohio Valley Wrestling in 2006.

After inducting his father into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007, he was brought up to the main roster and quickly paired with Bob Holly as a team.

His first tenure with the company lasted through 2016 when he requested and received his release as he embarked on the independent scene while becoming a major star in Ring of Honor and abroad before being one of the building blocks of AEW in 2019.

After ending his contract with AEW, he returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38 at AT&T Stadium where he defeated Seth Rollins.

I wonder if this doc will even mention his time in AEW. It would be near impossible to get around that.

I don’t see why not, in his interview with Austin he spoke about it. I guess you never know with WWE though.

Well, they mention Vince flying out to see him so I think they have to mention it. I wonder if they get any video clips of All IN or any of the other AEW run or interviews with AEW talent
