The premiere date for the first movie that WWE Studios and Netflix have been working on is set. 

The movie titled, The Main Event, started filming last June in Vancouver, British Columbia and wrapped up filming in August. 

Netflix recently revealed that the movie will be debuting on the streaming service on April 10. 

The synopsis reads like, “When 11-year-old Leo Thompson (Seth Carr) discovers a magical wrestling mask that grants him super strength, he uses it to enter a WWE competition. With the support of his grandmother (Tichina Arnold), Leo will do whatever it takes to achieve his dream of becoming a WWE Superstar. Can one kid win it all, in the face of epic challengers in the ring?”

Directed by Jay Karas, The Main Event co-stars Adam Pally, Ken Marino, and features WWE superstars Kofi Kingston, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, Sheamus, and Babatunde Aiyegbusi as Leo’s ultimate opponent, a gigantic wrestler named Samson.
