When two major media giants team together, the potential is through the roof. According to a new report from PWInsider, WWE Studios and Netflix will be teaming up to produce new content, beginning this summer.
The combined projects will be directed towards family audiences, and the first film will be called “The Main Event.”
WWE Studios has produced a number of films; you can see the trailer for one of their most recent below:
From the report:
The Main Event tells the story of a ten-year old boy who is bullied but dreams of growing up to become a WWE professional wrestler. However, he gets to live his dream earlier when he discovers the secret to having super-strength in his breakfast cereal, becoming “The Spaghetti Kid.” We are told that John Cena is referenced in the film and has a cameo role late in the current version of the script. The current version of the screenplay also features small roles for Sheamus, The Miz and Bray Wyatt, with a number of references to WWE NXT as well.
This could be really cool if done correctly. In addition, it will provide even more media outreach for WWE, which is never a bad thing.
