Rourke really Wrestles

01.26.2009

By now you probably know that resuscitated actor Mickey Rourke can seem a bit eccentric, but apparently he really got into the mindset of his spandex-clad on-screen character Randy "The Ram" Robinson.

At the SAG awards, the pumped and peculiarly textured star of THE WRESTLER claimed that he would be involved with the upcoming WWE Wrestlemania 25. "The boys from the WWE called me and asked me to do it," Rourke muttered. "I'm talking with Rowdy Roddy Piper about it."

Rourke expressed joy that the wrestling community embraced the film, and while it's unclear as to exactly what his potential participation in the April event would be (pimping the DVD release?), he did single out one particular entertainer/athlete: "Chris Jericho, you better get in shape. Because Iím coming after your ass."

Extra Tidbit: Perhaps Rourke and Piper will chew bubblegum until their supply is exhausted, leaving but one course of action.

WWE MADE IT WORK...

Even though I hate the fact that Jericho will have to lose against a celebrity, you have to admire WWE's marketing tactics. THIS is exactly what they wanted. Major sites like JoBlo picking news like this up and WWE getting the publicity. Plus it's Mickey Rourke...he's huge after The Wrestler. Vince McMahon you've done it again, you sly bast*rd!

And then Rourke can refuse to put on the glasses, leaving Piper no choice but to begin a most legendary alley-fight.

Probably...

Because Jericho is the only wrestler who will make this work and make Rourke look better than what he really is. If anybody can make someone look good its Jericho. And Rourke was trained by Afa of the Wild Samoans so it should be interesting to say the least....

As a fan of WWE and a person who's anticipating WrestleMania 25, I can't see why this is good news. Mickey is a great actor, but to waste someone as talented as Chris Jericho in an event like WrestleMania against a celebrity (who Jericho is definitely going to lose to) is going overboard. Anyway, that's WWE for ya'. Sometimes I wonder why I still watch it. It's crazy, weird, staged, and filled with people who beat each other up for a living...hey, I know why I like it again! Awesome!

Man, why someone as talented as Jericho is doing this is beyond me.
