Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler, starring Mickey Rourke will debut on HBO this weekend. The film received numerous Academy Award nominations, and featured scenes shot at ROH, CZW, WXW and JAPW events. The film also featured the following wrestlers: Necro Butcher, R-Truth, Romeo Roselli, Claudio Castagnoli, Desmond Wolfe, Tommy Rotten, Bobby Dempsey, the late Paul E. Normous and more.
For those that have been wondering, Mickie James did know about the "Piggy James" sketch on Smackdown before going to the ring. They even did a run through of the segment earlier that day.
The 2009 Bragging Rights DVD will be released tomorrow.
