A hard-hitting action/drama written by rising star Joanne Starer (Sirens of the City)! Pro wrestling champ Shane Bryant's ring persona-his gimmick-is forgettable: he's a "nice guy." But his secret is more colorful: he has super strength. And when he punches a fist straight through his opponent's brain-in front of 2.4 million horrified viewers-everything changes. Now Shane needs a new gimmick-and a new life!
