Everyone knows the significance that April 2000 has in the wrestling world as that is when WCW made the questionable decision to allow David Arquette to win the WCW World Title. Arquette was starring in the upcoming Ready to Rumble movie featuring various WCW stars. I always thought that this was one of the worst decisions the company could've made, because though it got press they didn't need to take it so far. Think about the Andy Kaufman angle in Memphis with Jerry Lawler. They didn't need Andy to win the World Title to get press; they had him feud with the right person.
The decision to win the World Title aside, I always respected David Arquette for donating all his earnings from his time in WCW to the families of Brian Pillman, Droz, Bobby Duncum Jr, and Owen Hart. Though he might've been given a chance he earned respect by his gesture. Arquette would start a road to redemption and fix his reputation among wrestling fans. Ultimately, Arquette was out to prove "You Can't Kill David Arquette."
I haven't watched a lot of programs or documentaries on Hulu, but as a wrestling fan if you have access to the documentary then it is definitely worth your time. David Arquette has my respect as a wrestling fan for over twenty years.
