No, that was a Universal movie. Vince got an Executive Producer credit I think as Rock was still under contract with WWE at the time.

Yea he was under WWE contract at the time you know I am so far surprised that The Rock won't get inducted within the same hall of fame class as Steve Austin.

They won't want to rush everyone into the "Hall of Fame" too soon. They are running out of people to induct so they have to spread them out a bit.

How can you run out of people to induct? theres many years of people who deserve to be in the hall of fame.

Well I know for a fact that pretty much all the wrestlers in the locker rooms (hell, even the steriod dealer) are all wrestlers on the Northeast independent scene. I can even say (and name drop) Mickey's stunt double as a man whom I know.

In regards to the Hall of Fame and them running out of inductees, I don't think so especially now that Vince is incorperating wrestlers from all over.
If anything, this year there is a heavy Texas class going in just cause Wrestlemania is there this year.

I found "The Wrestler" to be a good movie. I thought it was stark and unflinching in its depiction of a darker side of the wrestling business, similar to "Showgirls" depiction of Las Vegas.
I'm not sure I'd recommend it to a casual wrestling fan. It offers a somewhat distorted view of the wrestling business in a lot of ways. But not a false view. It's just not the whole, complete truth. It's just a part of the truth.
The WWE and TNA would be right to distance themselves from this movie.
Also, it's unfair to assume that only wrestlers can end up like Mickey Rourke's character. It could happen to anyone.
