Mickey Rourke to Appear in WWE's "Wrestlemania"

Posted: January 26th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Mickey Rourke to Appear in WWESubmit Comment
Mickey Rourke has received critical acclaim for his comeback role in "The Wrestler," where he plays a former pro wrestling legend who falls on hard times. And on the red carpet at the 15th Annual SAG Awards on Sunday night in Hollywood, the actor revealed he's about to get in the ring in real life.

Rourke will be participating in WWE's "Wrestlemania 25" in Houston on April 5th.

"The boys from the WWE called me and asked me to do it," Rourke told Access Hollywood. "I said, 'I want to.' I'm talking with [WWE legend] Rowdy Roddy Piper about it."

Rourke added that the professional wrestling industry has been extremely supportive of his portrayal of the sport. "The nicest thing has been the whole wrestling community embracing us," he said. "The movie was about their world."

And when he does jump into the ring with WWE, it appears the actor may already have his sights set on an opponent. "Chris Jericho, you better get in shape," Rourke added. "Because I'm coming after your ass."

Awesome, The Wrestler is so much better than Benjamin Button! It deserved a Best Pic nom. Mickey Rourke is winning it for sure now that Clint Eastwood isn't even nominated and Sean Penn has already won. Remind us when it's April 5th and time for Ram (Rourke)
