‘Stone Cold’ Steve Merchant
Most people know wrestler-turned action star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the hardest blokes around. Who do you think he might have drafted in as his tag team partner? That’s right, it’s only lanky co-writer Steve “The Beanpole” Merchant.
According to Deadline, the duo are teaming up for a grappling-themed film, “Fighting With My Family”, focusing on the mad family of on-off WWE womens wrestler Paige. Apparently, Steve will not only produce the film, but will take on writing and directing duties as well!
Steve of course appeared previously with The People’s Champ on-screen in The Tooth Fairy, and also appeared in the crowd at this year’s Wrestlemania. Has he been a secret Wrestling Observer subscriber this whole time?
What do you make of this news? Will Fighting With My Family reach Wrestlemania status? Or will it go down as well as a double count out finish? Pop on by our forums, our Facebook, or our twitter and let us know what you think, and as always, keep it locked here on Pilkipedia.co.uk.
