About the movie
Randy "The Ram" Robinson is an aging professional wrestler who works part-time at a supermarket. Despite his failing health, he continues to wrestle in an attempt to cling to his success in the 1980s. Randy befriends a stripper, Cassidy, who is also too old for her job. After intensifying his training and taking steroid injections, the stress of wrestling is too much for Randy's heart, and he suffers a heart attack backstage. At Cassidy's suggestion, Randy visits his daughter Stephanie whom he had abandoned when she was a child. Retiring from wrestling is challenging enough for Randy, but he also struggles with regaining love both from his daughter and Cassidy. Nominated for two Oscars.
