Looks awesome and I can't wait to see it.

Pretty cool. As a Ring of Honor fan, I like that they're getting a good placement push out of this (there's even allusions to CZW too). ;-D

I've read some very good reviews on this movie. I'm not a wrestling fan, but I think I'm watching it.

I hate fake wrestling but that doesn't mean it won't make for a good movie. Plus, Mickery Rourke is still the man. Can't wait to see it. }:-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Suddenly it's cool to say that you are a Mickey Rourke fan. :-D

All of the reviews I've read says it's pretty good, but I admit, even if they said it stunk I'd still probably watch it anyway. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Are you questioning my fanhood!!!??? :-D

But seriously, who isn't a Mickey Rourke fan? OK maybe the younger guys but if you're old enough to have seen The Pope of Greenwich Village, Angel Heart or Barfly (off the top of my head) then you're a Rourke fan or devoid of good taste. Plus, I think Spun and Sin City made it cool to be a Rourke fan again. O:-)
