– WWE’s taking a shot at Mickey Rourke, star of The Wrestler under the new “Misfit Toys” feature on their website with the following: “Don’t have the heart to tell your girl her skin looks more leathery than Mickey Rourke’s? Screw it son. Crack open two cans of moisturizer, and toast them sombitches right in her face!”
– Also, WWE has released the following statement to Jeff Wilen’s JAWbreaker column:
“While ‘The Wrestler’ is a very engaging movie, it portrays how wrestling was conducted in some independent wrestling circuits, unlike WWE, which is a global brand with millions of fans.”
As noted the other day, sources close to Vince McMahon noted that “he hated” the movie after getting a private screening.
