Walk Like a Panther (2011)

Set in Yorkshire, 22 years after the plug was pulled on British wrestling on TV, a band of brothers will squeeze into their leotards for one final rumble. Dealing with the highs and lows of everyday life through the boston crab and the half nelson, the wrestlers will find themselves, one another and they will never say die.

Over two decades ago, on every Saturday, of every week, every great British household would come together as one. At four o’ clock in the afternoon, the nation would be unified in their support of great and fearsome warriors. Many were loved, few were loathed – all were heroes. British Wrestling took place in a world where only the strongest survived – and to survive you had to ‘Walk Like a Panther’.

Later developed as a feature film, released by 20th Century Fox in 2018.
