Tito Santino and Randy “The Ram” Robinson

One of my professors sent me this article:

Michael Winerip of the New York Times wrote an interesting article related to wrestling. In the article, Winerip talks about the basic plot of The Wrestler and if it is reality based.

Tito Santana, a former Worldwide Wrestling Federation Intercontinental Champion and Hall of Fame member, is wrestling on the local indy circuit at the ripe age of 55. Santana’s recollection of moments in his life was very insightful, and could prove to be useful for other prospective wrestlers.

Santana did say that he knew people who were mirror images of Rourke’s character in the movie, although he never released the names.
