Speaking of wrestler related movies, Joseph Lavender sent along the following press release…
Hey guys. I just wanted to let you all know about a new feature film project in production right now. It’s a full length movie about a quirky phone based IT guy who gets fired from his job, and decides to embark on a career in professional wrestling. The movie is being produced by independent film production company “Blackflight Studios”. Creators of the feature films: “EXIT 101: HALLOWEEN PARTY MASSACRE” (out now on DVD nationwide) and “The Legend of Seven Toe Maggie (due out this summer). The movie stars Joseph Lavender and Allie Brown, and boasts a cast of 50 different characters. The film is being shot in High Definition and intends to make a theatrical release at some point.
The movie is being shot in Georgia, and will feature cameo appearances from several current and former wrestling stars from the WWE, WCW, TNA, ECW, and indie circuits. We are shooting the film in High Definition, and plan to hopefully take it to theaters. We need to raise an initial amount of funding in order to get started. We feel like there is a definite shortage of good films that pay homage to our favorite past time. If you’re a fan of movies like “Foot Fist Way”, “Super Bad”, “Talladega Nights”, “Napolean Dynamite” or “The Hangover” put a professional wrestling spin on it, and you have our film “SUPLEX”.
We are in talks with several current and former wrestling personalities, such as Diamond Dallas Page, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Torrie Wilson, Daffney, Wildfire Tommy Rich, among others..
We need your help to make this a reality. If you want another professional wrestling film to enjoy, made by people who have a background in the indie industry, then check it out and share our page or contribute if you can. We are giving away some really awesome stuff including custom luchador masks, custom action figures, and REAL title belts that are one of a kind.

Derrick Bateman details WWE developmental:
Former NXT star Derrick Bateman discussed the developmental procedure during a recent interview with the Wrestling Heels radio show…
“It’s pretty basic. Monday, Tuesday, you have a day of practice and then – back in the day it used to be Wednesday would be promo class or art of communicating, they like to call it. Thursdays would be a show at the arena and then Friday, Saturday maybe we have shows. If we don’t we might have a little practice and this would repeat every week. It’d be pretty much the same.”
On what was expected in promo class…
“Real brief, just being able to communicate in a way that is current to how they would like it, current to the norm. So as opposed to back in the day of promo being a guy screaming about something and just basically telling a story with the amount of time you have. You just wanna tell a story, [which is] pretty much the gist of everything we do. We tell stories. Being able to communicate in a creative way certainly helps. The thing about a promo class is it’s a way you can try something, see if it works. If it works, cool. If it doesn’t, you can try something else and you kinda have free reign to pick and choose what you wanna do sometimes, and that’s always cool to have an open forum for your own amusement.”
On his release…
“I don’t know how far it was, but I was doing the Mr. USA [promos], and had some guy on computer making those. That was something that was going to happen and almost didn’t a couple times, but unfortunately, in a Saturday Morning Slam match with Antonio Cesaro, I hurt my knee again and I had to have surgery on it. Then that match with Alex Riley was my first match back from having that surgery. So after the injury, you’re out of sight, you’re out of mind and things happen.
“There’s no regrets from me on my part of what I’ve done. I can regret getting hurt at an inopportune time or two, or I can regret maybe not pushing hard enough to talk to somebody. But I have really no regrets for anything I’ve done in the ring or outside of it, or the entertaining stuff I try to do. No regrets at all with that.”
