I might be watching them out of order now, but I don't really care as this was one of the episodes I wanted to see once I found out it came out. Even though Gino was a bit before my time through video footage I have become a big fan of the "Handsome Half-Breed." The reality is that Gino only scratched the surface of his potential and it's crazy to think how much more he could've accomplished had he not passed away. At the time of his passing Gino was just starting an incredibly heated rivalry with long time tag partner Chris Adams whom he had blinded only weeks before his passing. World Class had needed a new top feud to help bring the business back up after things tailed off with the Von Erich/Freebird rivalry and it looked like Adams & Gino were going to do exactly that, but tragically as history tells us that didn't happen.
The documentary explores various subject which include:
Gino's Dad having been a wrestler
Starting in Houston & Being born to be a wrestler
His gift of gab
Life outside the ring
His death & The Funeral
Plus various other subjects!!
