Howdy SWAFT Nation!
Mark Tuesday, May 7 at 7.30pm in your calendars!
Following the great success of our first visit to the Prince Charles Cinema in London in November 2018 to screen Beyond the Mat, Luke, Oli, Laurie and the rest are heading back for another dose of cinematic goodness!
This time the wrestling related film in question is Ready To Rumble.
Released in 2000, this critically panned movie—based on the now defunct World Championship Wrestling (WCW)—was largely overshadowed by the controversial storyline WCW employed to garner publicity for the film’s release. In an attempt to market the film and to attain more viewership for their weekly television show, WCW had the film’s star David Arquette, a real-life wrestling fan, win their prestigious World Heavyweight Championship. This decision is often cited as pivotal to the demise of WCW.
In 2018 Arquette has since returned to the world professional wrestling in an attempt to earn the respect of the fans that have trolled him since 2000; making it only fitting that we see this film return to the big screen!
As with our previous screening, WrestleTalk wants to bring the atmosphere of a live wrestling show to the screen for this special performance. Oli and Luke invite you to bring your signs, your best chants, and favourite quotes from the film along with you! Don’t stop there though! Be sure to wear your favourite wrestling t-shirts or cosplay as your favourite wrestler!
After the film, Oli, Luke & El Fakidor will bring you a LIVE WrestleRamble, where they will discuss the film and more!
Get down early, as the WrestleTalk stars will be in the bar selling merchandise and meeting fans from 19:30!
