Doug Sommers is a name synonymous with wrestling and "Pretty Boy" sat down to go on record about his glorious career. Breaking into the industry at the tender age of nine years old with the help of Harley Race, Sommers learned the art of wrestling the hard way and worked his way up the ladder in all the territories. Amarillo. Dallas. Minneapolis. Mid South. Florida. Anywhere and everywhere, and Sommers has tales to show for it as he talks about working with, and for, some of the biggest names wrestling has ever produced. Terry Funk. Verne Gagne. The Von Erichs. Dusty Rhodes. Captain Redneck Dick Murdoch. Leroy McGuirk. The Gilberts. The Guerreros. Bill Watts. Calling all wrestling historians, this is one interview that shouldn't go under the radar.

Many of us fondly remember Doug from his days in the AWA and of course he spent a long time talking about his time in Gagne's Minnesota based promotion. "Pretty Boy" gives one backstage story after another that have never been heard on camera before. The Iron Sheik. The Midnight Rockers (Shawn Michaels & Marty Jannetty). Larry Zybsko. Greg Gagne. Curt Hennig. Scott Hall. Nick Bockwinkel. One name after another and no serious AWA fan should consider their collection complete without this incredible shoot. To top it off, Sommers gives his favorite road stories with his partner Buddy Rose and their manager Sherri Martel. In a word, this DVD is fun. It was fun to conduct and, for fans, it is fun to watch.
