Wrestling legend Jimmy Valiant gives his take on The Wrestler in an interview with www.wdbj7.com. Valiant says being a wrestler is a life sentence. "It's like a life sentence, you can't walk away," Valiant said. "Yes, I identify with Mickey. He can't walk away. It's the only thing he knows how to do. It is the whole life." Valiant adds he was offered a cameo role in the film, but declined due to a scheduling conflict. Nonetheless, Valiant was pleased with the film. "I give it thumbs up. In other words, I give it five suplexes, and that's the highest rating in professional wrestling, five suplexes," said Valiant.
