WWE Hall of Famer

I Wanna Wrestle in North Korea

EXCLUSIVE

It's the kinda thing that blew up in Dennis Rodman's face -- but WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas is throwing his name in the ring for a new wrestling gig ... in North Korea.

The event -- announced Monday -- will be held August in Pyongyang, and although the lineup hasn't been revealed ... Atlas says he'd proudly lace up his boots for a match ... even though he's 70 YEARS OLD!

Tony, aka Mr. USA, sees it as his patriotic duty, telling us ..."If Mr. USA wins his match, the people of North Korea will have freedom from oppression ... and Mr. USA always fights for freedom and righteousness."

We doubt Kim Jong-un sees it that way.

Tony says he's anxious to get a call from event organizer Antonio Inoki ... who fight fans remember for his famous hybrid wrestling/boxing match with Muhammad Ali back in 1976.

Well I guess if you want to Lose a "Wrestling" Match to Kim Jong Un it is better to send in a Actor who gets paid to lose then a Real Wrestler who would go to Kick Kim A$$.
But American Basketball team with all Ex NBA Players could not beat North Korea, so I guess there goes my theory.

ah... here we go again. another uneducated fool who thinks he can "fix" this sadistic, megalomaniacal dictator. winning would only improve his chances of ending up in a prison camp...and before any of clowns give me a "hate," you're just as stupid.

I feel sorry for the people in North Korea. It must be hell on earth. You can see it from outer space.
