Chauncey DeVega's World of Ghetto Nerds: Mickey Rourke is The Wrestler



As one reviewer said, "witness the resurrection of Mickey Rourke"--I think he is right.

I know Gordon doesn't get professional wrestling, but I am marking out for this film. Ghetto nerds everywhere are going to be at the Wrestler when it opens nationwide. Watching the trailer (over and over), I am trying to count how many folks Mickey Rourke is channeling. I see Steve (Hollywood blond era) Austin, Terry Funk, Jake Roberts, and the Freebirds. Who else am I missing?

In all honesty, I used to be a huge wrestling fan until I hit junior high.

I see some Sean Michaels in there.

Hey Chauncey, I'm a Mickey O'Rourke fan; respect his acting. I'll check it out.

You confess now Gordon...hmmmm, now I think you are just trying to salvage your rep.

@trill...I knew there was a reason you were such a good blogger. wrestling fan equals creativity equals genius.
