    Whose career/life would you make a film of?

    If you could make a feature length film about 1 superstars life/wrestling career. Who would it be?

    In my opinion it would have to be Bret Hart. His life has been an up and down drama and would be great to be adapted into a film.

    -Growing up in the dungeon
    - Wrestling with family
    - Fighting his brother owen hart
    - Being at the top of wwe and having to move over for the new stars coming up
    - The screwjob and leaving the company.
    - His brothers death and davey boys death
    - feud/reconciliation with McMahon
    -etc.....

    We have seen/herd all this before in various documentaries but I think if ever there were to be a film about the life of a superstar this would be by far them sot interesting.

    What do you all think?
    (And yes we know there is rumoured to be a film about Benoit so let's try not to dwell on that too much.)

    Probably Eddie Guerrero's.

    With his lineage, personality, demons and triumphs, it would be an amazing film.

    Jericho and Benoit feel like obvious ones.

    Jericho's life story, from his first book anyway, is fascinating, hilarious, dramatic and is a typical "follow your dreams, achieve your goal" kind of story, with a lot of interesting characters along the way.

    Benoit, if it can be done tastefully, would be a great movie. I wouldn't have him portrayed as a villain for the whole thing, more of a Travis Bickle kind of character, who has his issues and unlikable qualities, but you sympathise with him because of the movie being told from his perspective and incidents such as Eddie's death, neck injury, divorce.

    Scott Hall would be a good choice for a movie, a fascinating and tragic life so far, with hopefully a happy ending.
    I would also like to see about The Rock, played by the Rock, just for laughs

    I think Ric Flairs would be a good life to be told in a Movie. The start of his career the struggles in the wrestling industry, his personal struggles I think would make a decent movie.

    Without a doubt, Ric Flair.

    Adopted at a young age, breed as an athlete, brought up under Verne Gagne, transitioned to a territorial darling, caught in an airplane crash, took a Mid-Atlantic promotion and helped get it to the point of an international company, formed the most successful faction in the history of wrestling with three good ol' boys who loved the business, wrestled until his 50's, launched dozens of careers, and styled and profiled the whole damn time!

    He IS the greatest wrestler of all-time after all. Whoo!

    Re: Whose career/life would you make a film of?

    I'm just wondering, is there a reason you'd choose Davey outside of how much you like his wrestling? You can tell he loves the sport and is incredibly dedicated, but did something eventful ever occur in his life worth making a movie about?

    I'm not really trying to single you out, I'd just like an explanation, if you don't mind..

    Re: Whose career/life would you make a film of?

    What about a Vince McMahon biopic?

    From his humble beginnings living with his mother and her abusive boyfriends in the trailer park, to finding out who his real father was, to learning the business from him, to inheriting his father's business and breaking his promise that he wouldn't go to war with the other territories, to Hulkamania, to the steroid scandal, to the Monday Night Wars, the Montreal Screwjob with Triple H helping plan it, the Attitude Era, Triple H, losing Owen Hart, Triple H, Ruthless Aggression, Triple H, Katie Vick, losing Guerrero and Benoit and the toll Benoit's death took on his business, Triple H being World Champ, Triple H becoming COO, and what his marriage to Stephanie is like.

    Yeah, a Triple H biopic would be grand!
