According to a new report from PWInsider, WWE and Netflix’s first family film titled “The Main Event” officially finished shooting Friday in Vancouver, British Columbia.
We had reported back in June that WWE Studios and Netflix had began production for the new film.
Also per the report from PWInsider, NXT star Keith Lee is said to have an extremely important and very big role in the film. It is also being said one source noted that they wouldn’t be surprised if Lee received a big push scheduled with the release of the film.
It is also being said that a number of local independent wrestlers were used in scenes that Ace Steele who has played Donald Trump on RAW, and recently guest coached at the WWE Performance Center appeared to be producing matches for the film.
WWE NXT star Babatunde has been cast in the role of the lead villain of the film. Otis of Heavy Machinery, Sheamus, The Miz, Beth Phoenix, Mauro Ranallo and Kofi Kingston all have filmed scenes.
“The Main Event” tells the story of a ten-year old boy who is bullied but dreams of growing up to become a WWE professional wrestler. However, he gets to live his dream earlier when he discovers a magical Luchador mask and naturally, becomes involved with WWE NXT.
“The Main Event” is scheduled to be released next year.
