Well it's not a movie, and its not even Tough Enough, but something I came across earlier today in the TV Guide sounds like it could rank right up there with all the backyard wrestling specials.

Here's the description (It's on Discovery - Sunday night at 7:00 (Central))

"What if living your biggest dream meant facing your worst nightmare? Get a no holds barred looked at what happens when one man has 3 days and $3,000 to make his pro wrestling dream come true."

and then from the blurb from the actual guide section:

"A San Antonio skycap attempts to follow in the footsteps of his pro-wrestling heroes despite his relative diminutive stature and weight"

I'm not sure why he'd need $3,000 if he's going to try to be a wrestler. Unless they really think that he's going to find someone to train him correctly for $3,000 and in 3 days.

So hopefully, he's trying to be a promoter and not an actual wrestler, because otherwise this is going to be ugly.

I bet SOMEONE out there would train him for that much... hell, Jake the snake Roberts will do it for $100 and a bag of crack.

They did this before with a Boston lawyer. I'm guessing it's done through UPW judging by the price.
