  1. I think any real wrestling movie about Jr wrestling and up has to be rated R to really give you a taste of how the wrestlers, coaches, and the sport is. For every match you wrestle you have already invested many hours of training.

  2. I had to wrestle him. His name is Alex Shaffer, used to go to Hunterdon Central High School…. he'd kick my ass every time I stepped out on the mat. Best part about it was he wasn't a cocky asshole, he was a pretty down to earth kid, like he is in the movie.

  3. I love this movie, its real wrestling. Most wrestling movies like vision quest have really crappy unrealistic wrestling. Usually you see the guy out, hit a head lock, and win everything. Anyone whos wrestled knows thats far from true. This movies definitely good

  4. @wrestlerblake13 the wrestling is more legit then vision quest the kid that played the main character in vision quest im 100% sure had never stepped on a mat the kid thats the main character here won a new jersey state title as a sophmore
