The world of professional wrestling is full of some of the most outlandish characters ever seen on TV. As a business, it attracts eccentrics thanks in part to its flashy nature and high physical requirements. Because of this, the world of sports entertainment is a melting pot of drama, filled to the brim with potential storytelling in cinematic form.

The following entries would make for utterly compelling films and could give the movie business an entirely new perspective on the professional wrestling industry's harsh reality, whilst still being a tonne of fun.
