(PCM) Talk about finding an incredibly unique and hilarious way to relate wrestling and pop culture! Max Landis has created a wonderful short film titled “Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling” that tells the story of WWE’s Triple H’s rise and fall in the ring. The film has already surpassed over 1 million views on YouTube and continues to climb.
“Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling” is relatable to both fans and non-fans of the WWE and the story-telling by Landis is absolutely spot-on. Also, don’t even get us started about the sheer number of guest appearances that are packed into this short film, we gave up counting after awhile. Keep your eyes peeled for Seth Green, Macaulay Caulkin, Darren Criss, Haley Joel Osment, Josh Peck and David Arquette to name a few! There are also appearances by a ton of former WWE wrestlers as well!
As we follow along the story of Triple H is told in various sketches and each one is honestly more and more hilarious. I love the fact that the story was told with women playing the male characters and males playing the female characters … just brilliant.
Landis sums up the film at the end by explaining that wrestling is a form of entertainment and should be looked at as such, he says “A lot of wrestling sucks, but when its’ good it’s f**king great”.
