Wrestling-obsessed dullards fight for their favorite wrestler's honor after he is muscled out of World Championship Wrestling by a nefarious promoter.

ABSTRACT
Gordie Boggs and Sean Dawkins, buddies and hapless sewage workers, are devastated when professional wrestler Jimmy King is forced out of his plum gig with World Championship Wrestling by an unscrupulous manager. Determined to see their favorite wrestler stand to fight another day, Gordie and Sean set about working to drag Jimmy out of a drink-addled hole and back into the spotlight, going up against a cast of villainous characters and their own crushing ineptitude along the way.
