The Rock didn’t get involved in backyard wrestling during his career… yet. He learned how to become a pro wrestler under WWE’s umbrella. The subject is still interesting to him and now he’s involved with a new project that will shine a spotlight on it.
Variety reports that Dwayne Johnson is among the producers for a new 30-minute backyard wrestling series for HBO. This series will also have a hip-hop theme with the backyard violence.
“TRE CNT” is written by Mohamad El Masri and tells the story about Cassius Jones, a dock worker and indie wrestler. He is struggling and uses some inherited life insurance money to start a hip-hop influenced backyard wrestling federation.
Seven Bucks Productions is on board with this project. We will have to see how things progress. Sometimes it takes a long time to put a series like this together. No release date has been announced, but the project is making headway.
