Cal Chetley (Devon Graye) is a good student, loving son and best friends with childhood chum Luli (Madeleine Martin). He is a loner, for the most part, and is the butt of abuse by the local bullies. He decides that he wants to walk the same path as his late dad and long estranged brother, Mike (John Cena), both wrestling stars in high school. His mom, Sharon (Patricia Clarkson), is adamantly against wrestling, claiming it took her husband and destroyed her relationship with Mike. Cal, though, will overcome all odds to wrestle in the same ring as the “Legendary.”
