Originally posted by SirBubNormWell 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.
They did this before with a Boston lawyer. I'm guessing it's done through UPW judging by the price.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
This is likely a really dumb question, but I saw "Beast of Yucca Flats" last night, starring Tor Johnson, who apparently was a pro wrestler under the name of the "Swedish Angel". Has anyone ever seen him wrestle?
