David Arquette steps into the ring for a shockingly outrageous and wildly entertaining story of redemption, as the Hollywood actor makes a stunning return to professional wrestling. David Arquette entered the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) ring in 2000 to promote a movie… and left it as ‘the most hated man in wrestling’, after controversially winning the World Heavyweight Championship belt. Now, the actor is dangerously determined to redeem his reputation and reclaim his self-respect in the eyes of his wrestling heroes and the fans who consider him a joke.
“I’m just kind of sick of being a joke.”
Powerbomb has an interesting premise. A superfan kidnaps his favourite wrestler who he thinks isn’t realising his potential. But there isn’t much wrestling in the film.
The first five minutes of the film are mostly showing the main character, Matt Cross (Matt Capiccioni), in action and his athletic ability; including performing a Lethal Injection (handspring stunner) and Shooting Star Press (mid-air backflip) which demonstrates that he should be performing in big venues.
