Just in time for the presidential election, a political satire that finally puts politics in proper perspective- by equating it with professional wrestling. DeWayne Cantrell, a reformed politician, is co-owner of Buckland County Extreme Wrestling- a political pro wrestling federation that satirizes politics and the political elites on a weekly basis. BCEW eventually catches the eye of David Hutchinson, a powerful United States Senator from Ohio running for re-election, and he subpoenas DeWayne to appear before a hearing of his Senate sub-committee. After a heated exchange with Hutchinson at the hearing, Cantrell realizes it's not a joke anymore. Can DeWayne stand up for the little guy and stick it to the Washington D.C. elites? And to what lengths will the professional politicians, political operatives, and special interest groups go to stop him? And will American politics ever be the same?A deafening ovation greeted both women as Charlene Ann put a microphone to her mouth and cried out, aLadies and gentleman! ... Suave did seem a little out of place without the life-size cardboard cut-out of Karayna McAlister by his side.
