Ever wonder how on earth somebody actually becomes a professional wrestler? It's a lot less glamorous than you might think... Over the last several decades, for 20 bucks a night in front of crowds of less than 100, the "stars" of the Tri-Cities International Championship Wrestling Federation (TCICWF) have been trying to make it to the big time by performing their own campy brand of sports entertainment. In the process, they have inadvertently offended just about everybody in town. And now that the TCICWF is shutting down forever, these colorful, eccentric, clueless, indie wrestlers have one last chance to show the world that they belong in the big leagues. Kayfabe pulls no punches while revealing the hilarious absurdities of independent professional wrestling. Written by
wow, quite a little gem of a movie i stumbled upon. this is one of the greatest mockumentarys i have ever seen. right up there with fear of a black hat. mockumentarys are only as good as the passion the performers have for the subject matter, and this film has that passion in spades.
if you've ever been to an indy show where the wrestlers outnumber the audience members, if you've ever been to a indy show where the title belt is of the same design from a company that folded a long time ago...than this is a film that will hit very close to home.
i loved it, i can't wait to watch it again. better than anything christopher guest has done since this is spinal tap.
9 out 10. i too, have been knocked out by a potato on many occasions
