This weekend they shot footage for Darren Aronofsky‘s The Wrestler at an independent pro-wrestling show (Combat Zone Wrestling) show at the infamous ECW Arena in South Philadelphia. They filmed Mickey Rourke as down and out wrestling legend Randy “The Ram” Robinson enter the ring to Sweet Child of Mine by Guns ‘N Roses (a song which was written into the script). They also filmed the entrance of The Ram’s opponent and a bit where The Necro Butcher and Rourke’s stunt double brawl in the audience. Watch some fan-shot handheld footage of Darren Aronofsky setting up a shot of The Ram leaving at the conclusion of the wrestling match, after the jump.
