A Former Legend, with 1 Remaining Fan, and 1 Final Opponent...
The story of a professional wrestler, 'Leo the Blue Lion' who is nearing the end of his career and finds out he has one fan left in an 8-year old boy, who hides a secret that will change Leo's life forever.
A part of me died when kayfabe died. Kayfabe was treated with reverence. It was a privilege to be smart. It was a privilege to be involved in this business. It’s not because you had $1200 and could go online and buy a pair of f'n boots, and now you’re a f'n pro wrestler. --Ed Chuman.

Wow, they finally put this out. For those that remember him, The Great Maliki is also in this movie wrestling the main character. They filmed a good majority of this at Congress Theater. Very weird crew of people. And the little 8 year old boy was a diva.

A few notes about using the "Leave a comment" feature on the blog:
-- While there is a field asking you to provide your e-mail address, that e-mail address will not be shown to the public once your comment is posted
-- The grey Captcha box sometimes trips up people because it's hard to see and very particular about the characters being typed in exactly. To be on the safe side, you should copy your text elsewhere before hitting the Submit button in case the Captcha kicks out your comment.
-- If you've used the "Leave a comment" feature correctly, you'll get a message saying that your submission is pending approval.
Note: I approve all non-spam comments as soon as I see they have been submitted.
