They're Making a Movie About Anthony Robles

Who you may remember as the one-legged wrestler from Arizona State who beat Iowa's Matt McDonough in the 2011 NCAA Tournament finals. The whole "becoming a national champion wrestler on ONE FREAKING LEG" thing is obviously a pretty amazing story. So it doesn't come as too much of a surprise that they're going to make a movie about it. 

The climax of Robles' story is his national title win, so we're definitely going to get to see Matt McDonough in this movie -- or, more specifically, an actor playing McD. Which he had a pretty great comment about: 


Seeing McD (or "McD") get whupped in the finals will probably sting a bit, but it should be pretty cool to see McD and Iowa wrestling represented in a major movie.
