By Ryan Clark | February 25, 2010
-- The Wrestler star Mickey Rourke is up for the role of Conan's father in the forthcoming Conan the Barbarian remake also considering WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard for the lead villain role of Ukafa.
-- Former WWE performer Giant Gonzalez has pulled out of appearing at May's "Legends of the Ring" convention in Monroe, New Jersey due to ongoing health concerns. Monty Brown and A-Train have been announced as replacements for Gonzalez at the event. The former wrestling giant presently lives in Argentina and has been suffering from poor health for years. Nowadays, he is confined to a wheelchair and uses a dialysis machine to treat kidney failure. It was expected that he would only appear at the event providing he was healthy enough to travel to the United States.
