Favorite Wrestling Movie

This is different from my previous "Favorite WWE Studios Movie".

Let's talk about films that depict and reflect the world of pro wrestling. I'm excluding documentaries since there's just too many of them.

My personal pick is Ready to Rumble (2001). It truly embodies the life of die-hard marks. Sure, there were a couple of inaccurate stereotypes here and there, but seeing WCW in the flesh and stars like Goldberg, DDP, Sid, and Sting was awesome. Sadly, it didn't gave WCW the boost they were hoping for and even killed their own product. Nonetheless, it was a fun movie.

Fun fact: John Cena had a cameo in RTR.

What, no love for "I Like To Hurt People?" For shame!

Boo. Some of the best ones are documentaries. Beyond the Mat is epic.

From the poll, The Wrestler is the obvious clear-cut winner.

Re: Favorite Wrestling Movie

The Wrestler is the only one I can remember seeing, I saw Nacho Libre but can barely remember it.
