    • Synopsis
    • Once a hugely successful WWF wrestler, RANDY THE RAM now ekes out a living performing for diehard wrestling fans from the 80s in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey. Estranged from his daughter, unable to sustain any real relationships, Randy lives for the thrill of the show, the adrenalin rush of combat and the adoration of his remaining fans. But when he suffers a heart attack in the middle of a bout, Randy’s doctor tells him he needs to lay off the steroids and stop wrestling. For good.
      Forced out of show business, Randy begins to evaluate the state of his life. He tries to reconnect with his daughter and strikes up a wary romance with an aging stripper, PAM. For a while, things work out. But try as he might to resist, the pull of the spotlight is too much for him and Randy attempts once again to fight his way back into the ring.
