Synopsis

The past is catching up with the old wrestler, Sledgehammer: as a novice wrestler, years ago, he made a pact with the Devil to give his soul in exchange for 25 years of invincibility. Full of bravura, he wins all matches he can get his hands on and by accident kills his best friend. It becomes his downfall and when we meet him in the present, he is an alcoholised wreck … and he has forgotten all about the pact.

Then a mysterious stranger convinces him to fight one last fight. If he wins, he will get a fortune, enough to secure the future of the wife and child, he has neglected.
