Storyline

Ronald McFondle, Eddie Van Glam, and other social outcasts made up the Seattle Semi-Pro (SSP) Wrestlers, an off-kilter family of cabaret fighters that spoofed the pros. When newcomer Paul, the Banana, fell on the wrong end of the joke, he ran to the government to disband the SSP. It captures the wrestlers' fight to keep the theatrics alive.

Compelling and surprising film about a unique subject
20 April 2015 | by rhk79See all my reviews

Bodyslam's character development sneaks up on you. At first, I wasn't sure that I liked any of these characters, particularly Ronald McFondle - who says he's shy - but certainly isn't on stage. But the story just draws you in until you see them as real people that you actually care about and understand. This includes the vengeful "Banana" - Paul, who could have very easily been turned into a one-dimensional villain. Instead, I came to see him as someone who as proud to plot his own course in life, even though he doesn't allow anybody to get inside his defenses. Heck, I even found myself cheering for the Washington State legislature. The film's original score compliments the story line. It's an enjoyable, well developed depiction of the people inside of Seattle Semi Pro wrestling/performance scene.
