Growing up I was huge fan of Jon Landis movies, Kentucky Fried Movie, Three Amigos, Trading Places, Coming to America and more. And now his son Max Landis has made my all-time favorite short film called Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling.
Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling is a 24 minute short film that was released on You Tube on March 16, 2015 and as of this posting has hit 1.5 million views. It tells the story of the career of wrestler Triple H from 1995 to 2014 in a comical way with the wrestlers portrayed by women. This was not done in a mocking way and in fact he states in a follow up post that it was girls to “divorce it visual from the iconography of wrestling.”
Triple H even tweeted his endorsement.
Landis shows that he is truly a huge fan of wrestling and has been following it since he was a kid based on this presentation.
Making cameos in this is; John Morrison, Colt Cabana, Joey Ryan, Justin Roberts, Chris Hero, JTG, Shad Gaspard, Ryan Nemeth, Bill Goldberg, Frankie Kazarian, Becky Bayless, and Christopher Daniels.
Non-Wrestlers you may have recognized; David Arquette, Macaulay Culkin, Seth Green, Jamie Hyneman & Adam Savage of Mythbusters, and Haley Joel Osment and others.
This is so entertaining you don’t even have to be a wrestling fan to watch it!
So here it is:
