In this punchy, romantic take on the wrestling world where only some of the physical contact takes place in the ring, sports journalist Karen Montgomery has been following for years the career of Brett Kerrigan, one of the smallest cruiserweight wrestlers in the business, and can recall in detail every bout he has ever fought, recognising his outstanding skills as a wrestler and his intuitive flair for entertaining the crowd.
She has even written an award-winning article about him. Now she desperately wants to meet him.
One night, after many failed attempts to reach him, she looks up to find him standing right there in front of her. They get talking and they immediately hit it off.
However, as they become involved and grow ever-closer, Brett loses his contract and must strike out on his own. Will their relationship survive the pressures on both of them, their differences in ages, and the other women in Brett's life?
Or will one of them decide they are not the ideal tag-team after all?
Getting psyched was Brett's specialty, the kind of madness he needed for the championship. Tonight, he was wrestling Big Mac, one of the strongest contenders, and needed to be ready.
He was completing three hundred push-ups when the small locker room’s battered door swung open. “Five minutes, Kerrigan,” one of the assistants said. “You’re on in five.”
“Yeah!” Brett grunted from the floor on toes and fingers. “Thanks, Randy.”
The door slammed. He counted out three more pushups, “98…99…100!” He bounced to his feet. One of the smallest cruiserweights, Brett established a reputation as the fastest wrestling superstar.
When his entrance music played, Brett sprinted with confidence past an excited crowd, his heart racing, and ready to face the battle which lay ahead of him. The fans were on their feet, jeers ringing through the building as lights shone on his undersized physique.
