    Cool The Ram

    In the movie The Wrestler, Mickey Rourke's character is named Randy "The Ram" Robinson. This "The Ram" is for a kind of "hammer" or for a kind of "mutton"? Which one do you think is more suitable for a wrestler or for this wrestler?

    As I am sure you know, a ram is a male sheep, 'Randy "The Ram" is an allusion to male virility.

    Re: The Ram

    Also, ram has the additional meaning of smash into something (probably from the male sheep's fighting style). Think of "battering ram" (used to break down doors) and "ramrod" (used to compress gunpowder in a muzzle-loaded cannon).
