What's the story?
Reports suggest that several WWE Superstars will be making appearances in the movie, including Bray Wyatt and WWE veteran John Cena.
In case you didn't know...
WWE Studios came into being way back in 2002, and was initially called WWE Films. In early 2005, WWE announced that the company was about to begin working on three projects involving current Superstars as well as WWE legends. These three movies were The Condemned starring Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Marine starring John Cena, and Goodnight starring Kane, which was later retitled as See No Evil.
WWE Films was renamed to WWE Studios in 2008. Ever since its inception, WWE Studios has produced more than 30 movies. In February 2019, it was reported that WWE would be entering into a partnership with Netflix, to produce family-friendly flicks on the platform.

The heart of the matter
WWE Studios and Netflix will begin working on their first collaboration this summer, and filming will be done entirely in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The movie is set to be titled ''The Main Event", and will chronicle the journey of a 10-year old kid, who dreams of becoming a WWE Superstar one day. A twist in the story results in him learning that his breakfast cereal somehow gives him incredible amounts of strength, and becomes "The Spaghetti Kid".
The movie will apparently see former WWE Champion John Cena making a cameo. Additionally, current WWE Superstars Bray Wyatt, The Miz, and Sheamus will make appearances.
WWE has yet to officially announce filming of The Main Event. We'll keep you updated on more details as they come out.
