Storyline

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 Michael Raven

Entertaining mockumentary
21 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Just watched this film on DVD and I have to say I was very impressed. I didn't expect it to be any good (just judging a book by it's cover as I so often do), but to be honest it entertained me more than almost any PPV I've seen in the last year. The film is a mockumentary (insert generic Spinal Tap comparison here) that follows a struggling indie wrestling promotion as it finds out it's going out of business. The colorful cast of characters decide to do their best to go out with a bang. Film contains a vocabulary lesson and some other behind the scenes secrets that give some insider views into the industry, but the bulk of the story comes from the characters' interaction with each other. They are all relatively unremarkable (and most poorly acted) but end up growing on you by the end. I probably would have given it an 8 or 9 if the acting was better. But lets face it, if you've ever watched a WWE or TNA show you have seen far worse. Recommended to wrestling fans with a sense of humor.
