WRESTLING WITH REALITY is a new original docu-soap series
that body slams the viewer into the action of the real
people behind the characters of a fiercely passionate
group of professional wrestlers: the Kardinal Sinners. We
follow them on a make-or-break tour, which will either
allow them to control their destiny or tear them apart.
Every member of the Sinners has a passion
for the lifestyle and the career, a passion that for each
of them is now being challenged. They each have come to a
point in their lives where they have to make a decision:
either give up their wrestling careers and get a ?real?
job, or give it one more shot and prove they can make it
on the indie pro wrestling circuit.
In this series, we go inside a world of
great athleticism and natural showmanship. It is a world
guided by a strict code respect, not unlike the mafia. It
is a testosterone-fueled climate of drugs, fights (in and
out of the ring), and foul language ? plus moments of
humor and practical jokes. Mostly, we witness the
compelling and sometimes sad tales of men who won?t give
up on the dream because the applause and adoration of the
crowd is a rush they cannot get any place else.
Each episode features the gritty world of
the indie-pro wrestling circuit ? far from the glitz and
glam of big budget productions ? as the Sinners do almost
anything to get to the big time and put on a good show for
their fans. Their pre-scripted fights can easily go too
far and land them in the hospital ? if they?re wimpy
enough to admit to being hurt. Throw in the shady fight
promoters, the excessive bouts of drinking while on the
road, sexual temptations from the women on tour, all the
while trying to shoot a reality television show that, they
hope, will lead them to stardom and you have all the
ingredients for high action in and out of the ring.
After a glorious bout that drove the
crowd wild, we feel for Gary ?Wildman? Williams
as he breaks down and contemplates what might have been if
this were 10 years earlier?
We witness a young, cocky wrestler, Sidewinder,
being schooled by his elders and eventually fired for lack
of passion and dedication to the craft.
We see the strain on close friends, Pete
?Brody Steele? Smith and Rick ?Trash Canyon?
Doyle, as they almost come to (real) blows disagreeing on
what?s best for the tour.
For everyone who enjoyed last year?s
Academy Award nominated movie The Wrestler, this
series lays bare the entertaining reality of pro-wrestling
and makes viewers regret ever saying that wrestling is
