American Rhetoric: Movie Speech

"The Wrestler" (2008)


Randy "The Ram" Robinson Addresses Fans Before His Final Match

Audio mp3 delivered by Mickey Rourke


I just wanna say to you all tonight, I'm very, very grateful to be here. A lot of people told me that I'd never wrestle again and that's all I do.

You know, if you live hard and play hard and you burn the candle at both ends, you pay the price for it.

You know in this life you can loose everything that you love, everything that loves you."

Now I don't hear as good as I used to, and I forget stuff. And I ain't as pretty as I used to be. But god damn it, I'm still standing here and I'm "The Ram."

You know as time goes by -- as time goes by, they say:

"He's Washed Up."

"He's Finished."

"He's A Loser."

"He's All Through."

You know what? The only one that's going to tell me when I'm through doing my thing is you people here.

You people here -- You people here are the ones who are worth bringing it for because you're my family.

I love all of you!

Thank you so much!
