As some of you know, I’m a long time die hard profesional wrestling fanatic. I love the sports entertainment stuff to death. I just got done watching, “The Wrestler” finally, and yes, you betcha, I fucking LOVED the movie! Amazing! Jaw dropping!
Darren Aronofsky, definitely knows his shit with the wrestling business. After watching this film, now I can understand why Vince McMahon didn’t like the film that much because Darren exposed the world what profesional wrestling is really all about. It proved that wrestling is fake, and showed the world what it’s like with wrestlers, steroids, and drugs.
Mickey Rourke is some of the best acting, I’ve ever seen in the flick, he was just as good as Sylvester Stallone in the first, “Rocky”. “The Wrestler” is definitely the “Rocky” of this generation.
“The Wrestler” immediately headed up to one of my top 5 favorite films ever made. Ya know, that public feud with Chris Jericho vs. Mickey Rourke for Wrestlemania, try to understand that they aren’t enemies in real life. I’m pretty sure that Jericho and Rourke are great friends behind the scenes, they acted like enemies as part of a wrestling storyline. So in reality, Jericho doesn’t hate Mickey Rourke and all the wrestling legends, Jericho loves and respects them all, of course. Everything about wrestling you see on TV is scripted and storyline stuff.
I have recognized a WWE wrestler that made a cameo in the movie, and his name is Ron Killings, who now wrestles under the name of R-truth on the Smackdown roster. Ron Killings also used to be the Truth in TNA and K-Kwik.
This was a brilliant movie and pretty realistic too. Even if you’re not a fan of profesional wrestling, I would suggest all to watch this. You would understand why we love it so much.
I just love profesional wrestling and I understand why it’s not for everybody but the wrestling business deserves the respect ’cause they work hard to entertain us and put smiles on their faces. This movie gives you an idea of what it’s like being a profesional wrestler.
I feel bad that Mickey Rourke was robbed of the Oscar. This movie will be talked about for years. Will there be a sequel to this movie ’cause the ending kind of left open for another film? I think this will be a continuing series just like Rocky.
