The Les Enragés du Ring documentary series opens the doors to a major marginal sub-culture: the world of amateur show wrestling. The series follows the daily lives of six Franco-Ontarian wrestlers, all truly colourful characters in their own right, as they prepare for and then take part in various amateur show wrestling events in Ontario.
The mad men of the ring include champion Devon ‘Hannibal’ Nicholson, ‘Fabulous Jacques’ Lamoureux who resumes his duo routine with ‘Stunning Steven’ Levac, veteran wrestler Guy ‘The Spoiler’ Gagné, rookie Derek ‘Big Daddy D’ Roy, Michael ‘Von Payton’ Leduc, and Carla ‘Cici Galavis’ Caceres. By combining athletic prowess, high-voltage acrobatics, and a healthy bit of comedy, the wrestlers give their all to ensure their fans enjoy a show they won’t soon forget. And our gallant gladiators in tights never shy away from taking a bruising or shedding a bit of blood...if that’s what the audience is clamouring for.
