The Wrestler Roundtable Discussion with Wrestling Legends Roddy Piper, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, and More!
I know a lot of people still haven’t had a chance to see Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler, but the good news is that Fox Searchlight will be expanding the film to more theatres once again this coming weekend. In the meantime, they are continuing to throw out some interesting little marketing treats such as this five-part roundtable discussion with a number of old school wrestlers who give their thoughts on Mickey Rourke’s performance and the authenticity of the film.
I’m not sure these will convince any non-wrestling fans to check out the flick, but it’s certainly interesting to hear their take on things. The wrestlers involved in the discussion are Rowdy Roddy Piper, Lex Luger, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, Diamond Dallas Page, and Greg “The Hammer” Valentine. You can see the first part embedded below, and the rest of the videos are after the jump. What do you think, will praise from real wrestlers increase Mickey Rourke’s chances of winning an Oscar?
