Rock Likes “The Wrestler”, MVP Interview, WM25 Give Away, More

Matt Boone

The Rock recently did an interview with "Moviefone" where he discussed the movie "The Wrestler" and his thoughts on it. Here is an excerpt from that interview: "I thought that the movie…was real and memorable. That world…it’s a very visceral, authentic world that [director Darren Aronofsky] created and I can’t say enough great things about the movie.  My uncle actually trained Mickey and he would call me weekly and give me progress reports. [He] was amazed at…his desire to do everything. That takes commitment."

Peter Siddorn sent along the following to WrestleZone.com: I picked up the latest issue of Gamesmaster and as well as a review of the Legends of Wrestling game (They give it 80%), they had a brief interview with MVP.  In it he said one of the finishers he used on the indies was inspired by a video game. The spinning kick that he called Malicious Intent he got from Eddy Gordo in the Tekken Series.
