— Highspots sent out a new press release about their upcoming documentary on Dynamite Kid. The press release says that the company was originally going to conduct the first shoot interview with Kid, but that they soon “knew a normal ‘shoot interview’ would not do justice to this particular individual.”
Highspots video editor Jake Feuerbach said, “This man is an enigma, he is probably the most interesting and unique individual we’ve ever sat down with. They say that in wrestling you meet the best people and the worst people and sometimes it’s the same person. Judging by our time with Dynamite Kid, he is definitely that.”
The press release says the company’s goal is “to produce the definitive documentary on Dynamite Kid’s life and career. We want to tell the story of the man, the performer and his impact on the world of wrestling.”
The company is financing it through Kickstarter; you can donate here. The campaign has raised $4,470 as of this writing out of $15,000 with twenty-one days left to go.

On Mark Henry’s current status: “Enjoyed talking to Mark Henry, although briefly, at the [football] game, and he looked great and I know that he’s excited about his pending return to WWE. Mark is a big, no pun intended, UT fan and his day at the Texas State Fair likely wasn’t as enjoyable as mine but I’ve been on the other side of the corndog a few times myself in the storied rivalry that ranks with the best rivalries in all of sports. ”
On the CM Punk DVD: “If you haven’t checked out Punk’s new DVD it is a must see and I don’t say that about any DVD that I haven’t seen or honestly feel that way about the production. It might be the best DVD WWE has ever produced. You be the judge.”
