David Arquette Wants to Play Liv Morgan's Dad in Ready to Rumble 2

It looks like we could soon be seeing a sequel to the greatest movie starring pro wrestlers the world has ever seen! What? No, not They Live. The other one. No, not The Princess Bride. The other one. No, not Suburban Commando. The other one. No, not No Holds Barred. The other one. No, not Jingle All the Way. The other one. No, not the Marine 2. The other one. No, not Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze. The other one. No, not The Tooth Fairy. The other one. No, not Santa with Muscles. The other one. No, not Ready to Rumble. The other… no wait, that one is it. Yes, Ready to Rumble. Sorry. We were stuck in a loop.

The call has been made for someone to make a sequel to Ready to Rumble, the 2000 David Arquette comedy vehicle that featured a veritable crapload of WCW wrestlers, which led to Arquette's WCW World Championship run. Yes, 2000 was an excellent year. Just not for WCW. Anyway, the call is coming from inside the house, as WWE star Liv Morgan took to Twitter to request that someone make a sequel to Ready to Rumble. And, of course, Morgan volunteered to star in it.

"Can someone make Ready to Rumble part 2, and can I be in it please ?" Morgan tweeted.

And that might have been it; a lone tweet lost to the ether requesting a sequel to a twenty-year-old film that made $12 million at the box office. But Morgan's tweet caught the attention of superstar actor and indie wrestling legend Arquette, who seemed more than down for the idea. In fact, he already knows what the premise should be.

"Well you work with the company that should own half the rights – and I think that would be awesome," Arquette replied. "I could be your dad."

What do you think, wrasslin' fans? Does this sound like a good idea? If it leads to Arquette getting a WWE run, especially one where he revives the WCW Championship, we're all for it.

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
