'CREDIBLE' Documentary Director Says That Justin Credible's Road To Recovery Will Be The Focus Of The Documentary

The Justin Credible documentary.

Former ECW World Heavyweight Champion Justin Credible has been in many of headlines over the past year and a great percentage of those headlines were not positive. Last summer, Credible uploaded a video onto YouTube explaining that he could've possibly went to jail for a disorderly conduct arrest that took place in 2016. The video of Credible explaining himself has been taken down but here's a quote from a portion of the video:

“I simply got arrested for threatening someone who I love and would never hurt, or touch. Yet tomorrow I face, at 9 AM in the morning, I face jail time and I have not had a public defender get back to me. I have worked for 23 years for the World Wrestling Entertainment company, I’m a former world champion and my life is on the line here and it’s very scary.” Credible said.

At the conclusion of 2017 Justin Credible went viral when he was recorded trying to hijack a 'Blitzkrieg! Pro' wrestling event while he was intoxicated.

Justin Credible stayed out the negative spotlight since that incident in December of 2017 as he went on to speak about his life on a number of podcasts this year until on August 15th when it was reported by Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet that Justin Credible was arrested for violating a protective order. There was no further word on how Credible violated that said order but he was being held on a $7,500 bond.

Justin Credible also has a documentary that is releasing to the public this winter entitled 'CREDIBLE'. The documentary will focus on the rise and fall of the former eight-time WWF Hardcore Champion. While making the rounds around the world promoting the film, 'CREDIBLE' director Eric Nyenhuis and Justin Credible himself spoke with 'MyRecordJournal' about the documentary and the message that will give off to those who view it.

Justin Credible: "This whole thing is just a journey of my life and career and what I went from to what I am today,” said Peter Polaco, who uses the stage name Justin Credible. “It just shows the journey of a man navigating his way through addiction, through family problems, through the industry of pro-wrestling.”

Director Eric Nyenhuis"What a lot of people don't understand is recovery from addiction is probably the bumpiest road you'll ever drive on,” said Eric Nyenhuis. "How this ends is up to him completely. This can either end up in a complete dumpster fire or be the best thing that ever happened to him. I want this to be the best thing that ever happened to him. We're not trying to create a wrestling documentary, we're trying to record his recovery, and we hope more than anything his redemption,” he added.
