Happy WrestleMania week! We're celebrating by discussing a hidden WWE documentary: The Mania of WrestleMania. This behind-the-scenes look at WrestleMania XIX gets deep into the personal lives of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, The Rock, Kurt Angle, and Brock Lesnar as they prepare for main-event matches at The Showcase of the Immortals. It's brutally honest about Austin's impending retirement and Angle's neck injury, not to mention the aftermath of Lesnar's botched shooting star press. This might be the best card in Mania history, and it certainly deserves the best documentary about WrestleMania.
