Netflix is set to bring us the next version of Like Mike, but this time they are teaming up with The WWE.
The Main Event is set to stream on Netflix on April 10th, and we are getting our first look at the film with its first trailer
Directed by Jay Karas, THE MAIN EVENT stars Seth Carr and Tichina Arnold, with Adam Pally, Ken Marino, and features WWE Superstars Kofi Kingston, Keith Lee, The Miz and Sheamus. It will tell the story of 11-year-old Leo Thompson (Carr) discovers a magical wrestling mask that grants him super strength, he uses it to enter a WWE competition. With the support of his grandmother (Arnold), Leo will do whatever it takes to achieve his dream of becoming a WWE Superstar. Can one kid win it all, in the face of epic challengers in the ring?
With a very Like Mike feel to it, The Main Event looks to be a fun family film. However I will say, despite the entertaining nature of the trailer, I would like to personally add, there is no way this kid, magic luchador mask or not, could throw around my friend Limitless Keith Lee. Bask in his Glory.
