Wrestling fans are thrilled when local boy Wynn Fairly wins the regional tournament and is set to compete for the state title.
Little do they know that Wynn’s opponent, Rowdy Ruthless, has an unscrupulous, greedy manager, Tara Boneaparte.
She’ll stop at nothing to ensure her wrestler’s victory! Tara’s plan is to have Rowdy’s seductive sister, Evileen, entice Wynn so that he falls head over heels for her (figuratively speaking, of course!) and loses his focus on the big match.
Tara’s plan gets knocked for a loop when Wynn meets and falls in love with Doe Ramey, a jingle singer at Cityville’s all-girl radio station.
In desperation, Tara and her crooked cohorts kidnap the innocent Doe. To save her, Wynn must lose the championship!
Set in the roaring 20s, Billy St. John has a ring full of wacky characters: manager Jim Locker, referee Squinty Peepers, timekeeper Belle Boynker, radio station owner Hedda Fuller-Eyre and indecisive Mayor Mae Bea Knott. As if that’s not enough, there are also mortician Mort Ripley, banker Buck N. Vestor and lovesick Bertha de Blooze.
Fresh and different from a traditional melodrama, your audience will be doubled over with laughter when they see Wynn Fairly, Champeen Rassler!
