Mickey Rourke is taking his interest in wrestling on the screen to real life, with a bout scheduled to take place in Wrestlemania 25 in Houston April 5 between Rourke and Chris Jericho.
“So come Wrestlemania 25 in Houston, I’m going to toss him around the ring like tossed salad. Chris Jericho, you better get in shape” said Rourke.
Jericho, appearing on WWE television, said, “You are out of line. It’s one thing to play a wrestler in a movie, something entirely different to actually be one. Your comments offended me. You made a mistake. It’s the last thing that you and Ric Flair want to do, and that’s offend Chris Jericho.”
Rourke is taking guidance from wrestling legend Ric Flair.
Our money’s on Jericho.
