Hugh Jackman Wrestles Magneto In WWE Challenge
It was crazy enough that Hugh stepped into the WWE Raw ring, but that was just the beginning!
WWE wrestler Damien Sandow caught everyone by surprise when he appeared dressed up as one of Wolverine’s main foes, Magneto. Hugh and WWE wrestler Dolph Ziggler watched as Magneto entered the ring, and then started teasing him, causing him to bellow, “I am Magneto!”
Hugh asked if he made his costume and said it looked awesome. However, one of the commentators said Magneto looked like a “super doofus.”
Then, things got real. “Behold, the power of magnetism,” Magneto said. Dolph tried to step in front of Hugh, but Hugh said he had faced the real Magneto and this one didn’t measure up.
This infuriated the faux-Magneto and he attempted to use his power of magnetism against Hugh. At first, the powers seemed to be working, but then Hugh threw his microphone at Magneto! To further increase his victory, Hugh body-slammed Magneto onto the mat!
Wolverine reigned triumphant against Magneto once again. All is right with the world.
May Is The Month Of The X-Men
Hugh is going to be very busy promoting the latest X-Men film, in which The 45-year-old actor returns as beloved mutant, Wolverine. Fellow X-Men mutants Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Halle Berry all join Hugh in the X-Men: First Class sequel.
