That’s what «The Wrestler» is about
Randy «The Ram» Robinson ( Mickey Rourke ) has a lot of scars as a wrestler who has been out of action — both physically and psychologically. Pumped full of stimulants, he still gets in the ring to put on a good show for his audience. Until he finally collapses with a heart attack.
He has to admit that he has to give up his career if he wants to live longer. Without a goal in mind as to what to do with his life, he looks to the stripper Cassidy ( Marisa Tomei ) – his only confidant, with whom he eventually falls in love.
