Not just a piece of meat. A heart felt story.

''I'm an old broken down piece of meat and I deserve to be all alone, I just don't want you to hate me.''

A drama centered on retired professional wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson as he makes his way through the independent circuit...

But since (again) my choices on the return flight from Amsterdam were limited, I decided that I'd rather watch a good movie (even if I'd seen it just a few months earlier) than some crappy thing.
