In this routine sports-dominated, low-budget drama, real wrestling footage with all its comic sideshow elements supplement the simple story. Lesley Uggams (Jeff Dial) is a documentary filmmaker out to do a project on a wrestler who supposedly killed himself after decapitating his opponent in the ring. Uggams suspects that the suicide was hype -- something unknown to the wrestling world, of course -- and that the killer wrestler is back in action as "The Mask."
