Branded as the most hated man in wrestling after winning a highly controversial WCW World Heavyweight Championship in 2000, actor David Arquette attempts a rocky return to the sport that stalled his promising Hollywood career. Dangerously determined to redeem his reputation and reclaim his self-respect, Arquette will stop at nothing to earn his place in professional wrestling.
The injury to the neck David Arquette recieved in the match with Nick Gage was real. He also was cut badly on the upper forehead. The wrestler tried to make an example out of the actor (Arquette) trying to be a wrestler. In real life Arquette received alot of respect in the wrestling industry after continuing on to wrestle.

Powerful if true. Poignant if acting.
I've always dug David Arquette in movies. Scream, Eight-Legged Freaks, Ready to Rumble-all childhood favorites.
But to see such a humanizing aspect of the man's personality added a depth to my appreciation of him. For growing up within an acting dynasty, to his personal struggles, and desire for nothing more than respect-dude's tough as nails.
I watched this expecting a schlocky self-parody, to shedding tears. I definitely recommend. Let's hope to see him in roles with more depth (even if I'm eagerly awaiting Scream 5).
