In the week of Summerslam, Tube Rats has decided to revisit the (not so) wonderful world of wrestling. As long-time WWE CEO Vince McMahon ‘retires’ with allegations piling up, Jimmy has fittingly selected several short films which tackle historic abuse in the professional wrestling circuit. He is joined by perennial heel, Jack, and people’s champ, Georgia, to discuss the people using film to make a stand.
If you would like to see the films before we discuss them, you can find all three below.
WARNING: Both films 1 and 2 feature themes of sexual abuse.
Film 1: HEEL (10mins)
Dir. Maggie Levin
Film 2: Moolah: Fabulous or Frightening? (16mins)
Film 3: The Wrestler – Director’s Cut (12mins)
