It's not some sporty tale of school wrestlers and their coach, but rather, and wonderfully, the world of pro wrestling. Cage will, hopefully, star as "a 1980s-era star pro wrestler who has become a burnt-out shell of his former self. After he has a heart attack during a small-time match, a doctor tells him he could die if he fights again." So, in the attempts to start a new life, he gets a job at a much-less-exciting deli, and gets sweet on an aging stripper and her son. "But the prospect of a rematch with his old nemesis the Ayatollah proves too tempting to resist, even if it means risking his life."
All of my little-kid WWF (pre-WWE) memories are bubbling up at the thought of this! Even though I think Cage would probably be better suited to something like the Mouth of the South Jimmy Hart, I'll bite. Now, I can only hope that this is filled with cameos from all those wrestlers of yester-year. Some, like Andre the Giant and the Von Erich clan, are no longer with us, but what about a little Jesse The Body Ventura, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Hillbilly Jim, Jake The Snake Roberts, Macho Man Randy Savage, King Kong Bundy, and on, and on, and on!
