Back in the late '80s, Randy 'The Ram' Robinson was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, decades past his prime, he barely gets by working small wrestling shows in VFW halls and as a part-time grocery store employee. He faces health problems that may end his wrestling career and is attempting to come to terms with his life outside the ring. He wants to reconcile with the daughter he abandoned in childhood and begins a relationship with a stripper. He struggles with his new life and an offer of a high-profile rematch with his 1980s arch-nemesis, 'The Ayatollah,' which might just be his ticket back to stardom.
Special features: "Within the ring:" a no-holds-barred one-on-one with real wrestlers and filmmakers; Wrestler Round Table: the gritty truth behind the scenes of wrestling with Hall of Fame wrestlers, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Lex Luger and more; music video "The wrestler" by Bruce Springsteen.
