Episode 34: Ready to Rumble
In early 2000, losing money and fans by the boatload, WCW decided they were so popular it was time to release a movie!

Oh, and you'll love watching fans just like you on screen for the first time, treated with all the dignity and respect you deserve and certainly not at all portrayed as absolute idiots who are dangers to themselves and others. Are we really sure an actual pro wrestling company was involved in this thing? For all this and more...let's go to the ring!
