Directed by George A. Romero and filmed in his trademark unapologetic style, the pilot was thought to be lost until recently. The short, written by Jason Bareford, plays as a promotional video centered on the wild, untamed and unregulated amateur wrestling circuit of the late 1990s.
|The George A. Romero Foundation (GARF) will be hosting a “Reunion Party” for Iron City Asskickers on Wednesday, evening March 3rd, 2021, via the organization’s webcast network, featuring the original cast and crew. Visit GARF for updates!|
|Created long before professional wrestling embraced the moniker sports entertainment, and filmed nearly 15 years after the airing of John Stossel’s 20/20 TV special which debated the profession’s authenticity, this male soap opera explores professional wrestling’s sensationalism and foreshadows the television genre now referred to as Reality TV.|
The six-time World Heavyweight Champion Sid Eudy (ring name Sid Vicious/Sycho Sid) of WCW and WWE fame, will be joining the webcast to share his reflections on the realities and demands of life in the ring during the sport’s heyday.
