Ring Warriors Documentary Poster

Ring Warriors

Danny Warren, a.k.a. “Hotshot” Danny Duggan, has a dream. He aims to turn his growing wrestling organization, Canadian Wrestling Elite, into a nationally-touring company. Ring Warriors follows him on his most ambitious tour yet, producing 21 shows in 21 days spanning five provinces in the dead of a frozen Canadian winter. Which means wrangling a roster of young alpha-males looking to make their name, as well as ring veterans fighting to keep their spot.

To add to the stakes, Duggan is bringing in legendary master of ring psychology Jake “The Snake” Roberts to draw crowds and hopefully mentor young wrestlers. He faces the challenges of managing the crew, juggling the finances, drawing crowds in small towns and trying to grow in a market where competition for entertainment dollars is tight.

Can he keep this show on the road? Or will injuries and infighting derail his dreams?
