Ohio Valley Wrestling in Louisville, Kentucky is a regional wrestling gym whose alumni include Brock Lesnar, The Miz, and John Cena. Once a proud finishing school for aspiring pro wrestlers, the gym has been struggling as of late.
Acclaimed wrestler Al Snow is forced to sell a majority stake to a group of local businessmen who have infused the gym with needed cash, but it still operates at a loss. The new ownership has given Al the summer to turn things around.
Al and his band of aspiring wrestlers struggle with their personal ambitions and each other while they attempt to come together to save the historic gym.
