Posted: Apr 15th 2017 By: Southwalesargus.co.uk
A documentary on the life and legacy of a Brynmawr-born wrestler will feature an interview with an American wrestling icon.
Feature film biopic, Adrian — currently in pre-production — will dramatise the life of professional wrestler Adrian Street, who previously worked in Beynon’s Colliery in Blaina.
Newport University of Wales graduate Joann Randles is currently shooting a documentary to accompany the film, speaking to wrestlers across Wales.
This included a recent interview with American professional wrestler, of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Mick Foley, who like Adrian, has built a reputation over the decades for his own charismatic personas.
Ms Randles added Mr Foley provided a “knowledgeable and colourful insight into Adrian’s life as a professional wrestler”.
She said: "It is important to me that I also produce a documentary that is to be released in tandem to the feature film drama to illustrate to audiences that Adrian’s story is very real and is not the work of fiction.
"It will also illustrate different perspectives of Adrian’s life with interviews from those who know Adrian best, including Adrian’s family members, friends, fans and fellow professional wrestlers.
"It also features family films which has never been seen before as well as Adrian in action in the ring."
Speaking about the interview with Mick Foley, she added: "US legendary professional wrestler Mick Foley, who is also in the WWE hall of fame, contacted me personally wanting to be part of the documentary, which to me made the interview that much more special.
"Mick knows Adrian well as Adrian taught Mick the art of wrestling before he became a professional superstar".
