Hugh Jackman Gets In Ring at WWE (VIDEO)
“If you guys love the WWE Superstars, I know you’re gonna love the ground and pound action in my new movie Real Steel,” said Jackman. “The robots are gnarly, they go at it from beginning to end. It’ll get you out of your seat. It’s a big sports drama, I know you’re gonna love it.”
Real Steel, which will be released in theaters on October 7, is a sci-fi film set in 2020 where robots replace humans in the world of competitive boxing. But Hugh – known to the action world as Wolverine – wasn’t just there to promote his film. He’s an action junkie himself, and loved talking to the crowd of adoring fans.
“I gotta tell ya, hosting the Oscars was cool… but the Oscars isn’t in front of 15,000 screaming fans in Cleveland!”
WWE champion Dolph Ziggler didn’t like the actor stealing his stage, so he and WWE diva Vickie Guerrero stormed into the ring to tear Hugh down a few notches.
“We all know that underdog is just another word for loser,” said Ziggler. “And just like people that meet you, losers lose!”
But Vickie had a tough time ignoring Hugh’s charms. “I am your biggest fan. And I totally agree with People Magazine that you are the sexiest man alive.”
