David Arquette is a glutton for punishment … returning to the wrestling ring after a deathmatch that almost killed him.
Arquette took the mic at a news conference Friday night to hype his upcoming match with veteran pro wrestler Jocephus in a “hair match” for the National Wrestling Alliance. The stakes … loser shaves his head.
NWA President and former Smashing Pumpkins frontman, Billy Corgan, kept the 2 men apart during the faceoff at the Pinnacle Family Entertainment Center in Clarksville, Tennessee.
Jocephus stormed the stage with a VHS copy of Arquette’s 2000 pro wrestling movie “Ready to Rumble” … mocking him as an actor and had no business trying to measure up in the ring.
As we previously showed you, poor David was a bloody, mangled mess last November after getting smashed in the head with a light tube.
The Arquette/Jocephus hair match goes down tonight. At least this time around, the consequences for the 47-year-old Arquette will not be as grave, unless of course the clippers haven’t been sharpened.
