PATRICIA ARQUETTE, ELLEN DEGENERES TALK BROTHER DAVID’S ‘SCARY’ WRESTLING RETURN

Patricia Arquette was not rooting for her brother David’s return to the ring. The Oscar-winner dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, and vented about her younger brother’s wrestling career reboot.

The 47-year-old was a WCS World Heavyweight Champ in 2000. "Well, he was the world champion of wrestling many, many years ago, so this is a revival of his wrestling career," the 50-year-old told host Ellen DeGeneres.

Patricia and Ellen discuss his revived career: "So he started wrestling again, and it is scary. He’s older now, he had a heart attack, and now he’s wrestling." Ellen: "When did he have a heart attack?" Patricia: "About a year, year and a half ago." Ellen: "Does it scare you to watch?" Patricia: "It really scares me. I actually don’t watch the matches because it would terrify me too much."

WHY HE RETURNED

David previously opened up about his return, telling People that he did it save face.

"Eighteen years ago, I won a WCW World Heavyweight Belt," said David. "But that win was a big disgrace to the belt and the wrestling community and ever since people have been criticizing me. I really wanted to prove myself and stand up for myself. I was sick of being bullied and for people thinking I’m just some punk from Hollywood."
