There are so many wrestling fans out there. Many past wrestlers and celebrities came out to support the director on his film. David Arquette (Actor/Professional Wrestler), Vive Devereaux (Actor), Robyn Duse (Actress), Christopher Daniels (American Professional Wrestler), Frankie Kazarian (Professional Wrestler), Scorpio Sky (American Professional Wrestler), Eli Drake (Actor), Josh Barnett (American Mixed Martial Artist), Rock Riddle (Wrestler), Massi Furlan (Actor), Jack Campbell (Actor), Shad Gaspard (Professional Wrestler), Royal Hawaiian (Glow – Wrestler), Cheryl Lighting Rusa – Glow Wrestler, Rob Lieberman (Director), Jerry Rector (Actor / Director), Glow Girls (Original G.L.O.W. Ladies) were among others that attended to see the film.

 

Some red carpet action happened while David Arquette (Actor / Professional Wrestler) was talking pictures on the red carpet full of photographers, RJ Skinner, Known as RJ City (Professional Wrestler) joined him on the carpet to get his picture taken with David.  Mr. Arquette was annoyed by his presence.  RJ kept irritating David.  Director Fulvio Cecere walked on the carpet to see what was going on, and while he approached the wrestlers, Mr. Skinner walked up to David’s face, so David pushed him and then a few pushes were thrown, before RJ City was asked to leave the carpet.  Since RJ City was seen after the incident, we wonder was this a publicity stunt or real.  David Arquette and RJ City will be having a wrestling match this Sunday, July 15, 2018 in Toronto, Canada. 

 

Even if it was a publicity stunt, punches and slaps hurt.  Questions is: Does wrestling involve punches? After the incident, David resumed and finished his picture taking and interviewed with a few outlets.  While RJ City roamed the theater talking to a few guests.

 

Who knew that a wrestling movie premiere can bring that much excitement to the red carpet?
