    Yea it's really well done. Drags on a bit, but good production. Really classy how Jay Cutler came on to praise him.

    I felt that is was a bit misrepresented. There's no doubt Ronnie has back issues. Fusion alone is no bueno, but when there's complications due spinal fusion that's a whole different level, but if I'm not mistaken this documentary was done not too long after Ronnie's second hip replacement surgery, correct? I understand the documentary was released in 2018, but when was it filmed? In my opinion that's the reason he's hobbling around on crutches, as I feel it's more from his hips than it is from his back. I just feel that the entire documentary steered viewers to believe his numerous failed back surgeries was the cause of his limited mobility and not his two hip replacement surgeries. I think I just feel this documentary was designed to lay the foundation for a malpractice law suit related to his numerous back surgeries, but maybe I'm misinterpreting it.

    If you are a big strong ego driven knuckle head who defines his self worth by the poundage's he lifts...IE me, you better change things up after 35....lighter weights higher reps. Had to let my ego go.
