It's a shame the only mainstream scripted film about pro wrestling during its prime was this one. Real life wrestling fan David Arquette fronted this comedy along with Scott Cann who played two slackers that fight back when a unscrupulous wrestling promoter unfairly ousts one of his most popular performers. It featured cameos from all sorts of top WCW superstars and during the promotion Arquette even briefly became WCW champion. Not exactly the best way to legitimize your brand...it was no wonder the company eventually folded and was bought by rival WWE.
