The Wrestler

“This is where I belong.”

Battered and bruised, emotionally dead and physically wrecked, the long-past-his-prime grappler portrayed by Mickey Rourke heads out for his final match.

These are his fans, the only people who have ever shown him true love, and, if you don’t have some goosebumps pop on your arms, you’re a cold person.

Professional wrestling is such an odd art form.

We know winners are predetermined, storylines written behind the scenes, but the pain and sacrifice are real.

They live (and sometimes die) for our amusement, warriors to the end.

Pour one out for them all.
