WWE are working with Netflix on a movie called ‘The Main Event’.
PWInsider are reporting that shooting will take place over the summer in Vancouver, British Columbia, concluding in late August.
Here’s what PWI’s report has to say about ‘The Main Event’: “The Main Event tells the story of a ten-year old boy who is bullied but dreams of growing up to become a WWE professional wrestler. However, he gets to live his dream earlier when he discovers the secret to having super-strength in his breakfast cereal, becoming “The Spaghetti Kid.” We are told that John Cena is referenced in the film and has a cameo role late in the film. The screenplay features small roles for Sheamus, The Miz and Bray Wyatt, with a number of references to WWE NXT as well.
“The screenplay was written by Larry Postel, who wrote, Flip Turn, a feature film that was produced earlier this year but has yet to see release.”
