Yo, you got 17 minutes?
You'll need 17 minutes to watch this dope documentary about wrasslin' in Minneapolis.
If you know me, you know homegirl's a bit scrappy. For a two-month in my late teens, I considered taking up professional wrestling. My wrestling name was Luscious EsQuefunka. I had big plans for a purple satin cape with sequins. Needless to say, the following documentary has a lot of appeal for a bruiser like me.
