Movie Info

The wild and colorful world of backyard wrestling provides the backdrop for this action comedy. Cole (Scott Hamm) and Lee (Walter Emanuel Jones) are two close friends who love professional wrestling and hope to make it onto the pro circuit themselves some day. Everybody has to start somewhere, and Cole and Lee soon become involved in the underground world of amateur backyard wrestling, in which grappling hopefuls do body slams and piledrivers next to the picnic table or the storage shed. Cole and Lee start making a name for themselves among backyard wrestling fans, and they soon begin working with aspiring manager Kristy (Bree Turner), a smart and sexy girl who soon makes Cole and Lee the talk of the Internet. But as Cole and Lee's star rises, they discover a lot more fighters are interested in taking them down a few notches, and the competition only gets tougher as they become more successful.more
