THIS IS WRESTLING: THE JOEY RYAN STORY
It took a career of hard work to make Joey Ryan a professional. It took one grab of his crotch to make him an international sensation.
Sure, some think he’s “killing the business” but to millions of viewers around the globe he’s the first shot of a revolution. Joey Ryan opens up about rejection, the importance of supporting performers and fighting for equality in the most unconventional ways. The King of Dong Style describes the unique route to finding success in a business designed to capture hearts, minds… and now… his penis.
This is Wrestling tells Joey’s story over a two year period of what can be considered the birth of a “Golden Age” in professional wrestling. While following one of the most iconic stars of the era you see the freewheeling world of independent wrestling thrive thanks to their rabid fans as well as the unconventional lifestyle of the performers they love.
