Hugh Jackmanís Mighty Fist Injures Wrestler

Let it never be said that Hugh Jackman won't do anything to promote a movie. The star of the upcoming "Real Steel," a futuristic boxing flick opening next month, had a guest appearance on WWE "Raw" on Monday night. And you better believe Hugh came out swinging.

Jackman assumed the role of a temporary manager for wrestler Zach Ryder, an underdog who was about to take on the hated Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler appeared to be winning the match against Ryder when Jackman noticed that the ref (Can somebody remind us why they have refs in pro wrestling?) was distracted. So Jackman punched Ziggler right in the kisser. Check out the video from the match. Gotta be the first time a host for the Tony Awards did something so macho.

Boom! Down goes Ziggler, and Ryder wins the match. The Huffington Post points out that the confrontation was certainly staged, but the results may not have been. After the event, Ziggler tweeted that he had a possible fractured jaw thanks to Jackman's vicious punch. Later, Ziggler tweeted that he had a "hairline mandibular fracture."

Whether or not that's true is anybody's guess (wrestlers have been known to exaggerate from time to time), the punch certainly looked authentic. And it should, considering the training Jackman went through for his role in "Real Steel." To play a former contender turned trainer, Jackman studied with Olympic gold medal winner and International Boxing Hall of Fame member, Sugar Ray Leonard. To see Jackman in the ring with the former champ, watch this behind-the-scenes look at "Real Steel."

lmao, Dolph Ziggler.

I might have to get back into wrestling if everyone has a name like that. Hilarious.
