Tim Donst has had one hell of a year so far. He went to the brink of having his career ended and his life irrevocably changed thanks to a malignant tumor on his kidney. Then, he came all the way back, announcing his return to the ring and pushing his career to ANOTHER brink in being scheduled against Nick Gage in his return bout at Absolution X. Documentarian Kevin Johnson was there the whole way to film Donst's trials and tribulations with the disease and his recovery. The trailer is after the jump:

For one, between this doc and the other docs Johnson produced about women in wrestling earlier this year/late last year (Kimber Lee/Intergender Wrestling), I'm glad that at least someone is giving wrestling, indie wrestling at that, the shine it deserves as an art. This doc looks like it will be no different. The trailer's shot beautifully, and Donst appears to be a passionate orator. However, the full video will not be available until AFTER Absolution X, which takes place July 10 in Cleveland, because:
I feel like it'll be worth the wait, regardless.
