|Plot Summary of Wrestling World|
Rodney Nelson, an unassuming chemist, thinks he's just won the Wrestling World Magazine trivia contest and is about to claim his award. Instead, he is abducted by two hulking reverts who take him to Wrestling World, the Planet, a place where wrestling is real and runs the economy. Here, Rodney will become a referee, one of the most thankless jobs on the planet.
Not content with his station as a ref, Rodney is given the opportunity to train as a wrestler in this crazy world with wrestlers like Extar the Shape Changer and Psycho the Cyclops. He falls in deeper when he meets Belair Belle, the most beautiful woman on six planets--and also the women's champion.
Rodney soon learns, though, that wrestling is a brutal business and the life expectancy of new recruits is painfully short.
