The sports movie category has been fortunate to have a nice selection of quality films that are worth watching:
- Basketball fans can look forward to White Men Can’t Jump plus Love and Basketball as real classics.
- Baseball fans know that Bill Durham and Moneyball are necessary viewing.
- Devoted fans of the football scene look to Friday Night Lights – as well as Remember the Titans – as the finest films about the sport that they love watching.
When wrestling fans feel the urge to look for standout movies that represent their favourite form of sports entertainment, their options aren’t as wide as you’d think. So if you’re on the lookout for movies which are based on wrestling which don’t make you feel as if you’re wasting your time and energy, we’ve got you covered.
Beyond the Mat
This is without a doubt one of the most interesting films about the wrestling that has ever been made. This film is actually a documentary which delves deeper into the lives of professional wrestlers.
The movie concentrates on their lives outside of the ring so giving you – as the viewer – a chance to see what the wrestler’s’ lives are like when they are not performing in the ring.
The first thing which you are likely to notice is that the same people who are standing up there shouting at the top of their lungs throughout a wrestling match are frequently very soft spoken and gentle for the most part.
In addition, this specific documentary features Vince McMahon, a person who a lot of wrestling fans love to hate. If for nothing else, it’s worth watching merely to see what he is like out of the wrestling ring.
‘Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling’
Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling flips gender roles on their heads as it recaps the story of Triple H. The film details the many intricacies which are displayed by his onscreen character. And all the while the director puts the best aspects of wrestling on full display in the most side-splitting and thought-provoking ways possible.
The True Story of WrestleMania
This wrestling documentary features McMahon and his group of wrestlers who usually perform for his organisation. Over the years, WrestleMania has developed into one of the most coveted events in modern-day wrestling. This film takes you behind the scenes so that you are able to see what it is all really about.
One thing for certain is you’re not likely to look at wrestling in the same way again after you see this documentary. So, it is well worth seeing, if you are a dedicated fan of wrestling or are just a casual observer.
Body Slam tracks the journey of a struggling music promoter who decides to try something new to revive his career. That fresh endeavour turns out to be his mixing of rock shows which also feature a slice of professional wrestling.
The comedy antics that this movie thrives on are as entertaining as spending time at NRL betting sites and they due to the roles played in part by “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Captain Lou Albano as well as the Wild Samoans. Keep a look-out for some dope wrestler cameos during the final match sequence.
