Hugh Jackman Lets The Publicity Stuntman In Him Take Over On WWE Raw

In an effort to promote his new movie Real Steal, which I learned today is based on the same short story as the Twilight Zone episode “Steal,” which makes sense and I shouldn’t have been so quick to assume they were trying to say they weren’t connected at all, this is more my problem than their’s I realize, Hugh Jackman paid a visit to WWE Raw. It’s a television show? About wrestling. You get it. From The Huffington Post:

The star ended up in the corner of underdog wrestler Zach Ryder as he took on Dolph Ziggler, a heel wrestler known for antagonizing the audience and his opponents. He extended the annoyance to Jackman, intentionally confusing his famed Marvel X-Men character with Batman.

Hahah. I just want to make it clear that I am NOT against this. This sounds great. I do not understand the WWE, barring the idea of The Miz which I love, but only because remember when he was on the Real World?, and I can’t imagine myself or anyone else actually watching it. But this does sound great. Following this, Hugh Jackman gave a staged punch-in-the-face to Zolf Renegade or whatever, helping Daze Motorquick win the round. But oh no! NOW ZOLF RENEGADE HAS A BROKEN JAW FOR REAL! From HuffPo, again:

“land in Bikini Bottom 9:30 am, MRI scheduled for 1 pm…..possible fractured jaw #thanksBatman” Ziggler tweeted on Tuesday … “hairline mandibular fracture. Guess i’ll put my chipotle in a blender for a few weeks, its not ballet #HEEL > heal,” he added later in the day, confirming the injury.

Uhoh, Zolf! This sounds VERY SERIOUS! No, jk. I do not think Hugh Jackman broke this person’s jaw. I’m not sure that anyone thinks that? Let me know if you think that. Also let me know if thinking that Hugh Jackman broke Drang Zanzabang’s jaw makes you want to see Real Steal. Maybe you should just watch “Steal” on Netflix instead. But anyway, here is the clip from Raw so you can JUDGE FOR YOURSELF!

I can’t wait ’til the Muppets are on and break ALL the jaws.
