2017 is shooting by like a rocket, ScreenTeam, and thankfully, the boys (minus Paolo) team up with stand-up comic and podcaster, Tirumari Jothi, to discuss one of the more serious movies in WWE Studios’ catalog — the John Cena-starring, high school wrestling drama, Legendary!
In this flick, Devon Graye (Dexter, The Flash) plays Calvin “Cal” Chetley, a bullied bookworm who looks to turn his life around by joining his high school’s wrestling team. Unbeknownst to him, this puts him on a journey that reunites members of his estranged family and enables him to find closure regarding his father’s death. John Cena, playing his brother, is a 28 year-old hermit who takes Cal under his wrestling wing, being a “legendary” high school wrestler, himself. Throughout the episode, the boys explore more of Marc’s weird SVU spider-sense, look back on their awkward high school attempts at strolling down “Boob Boulevard,” and why it’s really important to watch the whole beginning of the movie so you don’t think you’re some genius when you “figure out” something that was clearly established at the start.
Did You Know? Our guest for this episode, Tirumari Jothi, ALSO runs Super Trashed Bros., a “crowdsourced videogame drinking game broadcasting live from the San Francisco Bay Area.” Tirumari, however, received those reins from prior OTVS guest, O.J. Patterson, who joined us for episode 10 as we saw “No Holds Barred.”
