Impoverished wrestler Randy 'The Ram' Robinson (Rourke), fighting a losing battle with his finances, trades on vulgar past glories by taking regular beatings on the independent wrestling circuit. Not averse to carving wounds in his forehead to simulate serious damage, Randy finally hits rock bottom, but can he climb back? A salty mix of brutal comedy and subtle tragedy makes for an accomplished character study.
