The Wrestler star Mickey Rourke did in fact show up at WWE WresltMania 25, and was in the audience during Chris Jericho‘s handicap match against WWE Hall of Famers Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka. After defeating all three of his opponents, Jericho challenged Rourke to come into the ring. And as expected, Rourke stepped over the guard rail, climbed into the squared circle, and laid a few punches on the WWE star.
It’s unlikely that this will progress into a match that pits Jericho vs. Rourke as Mickey is set to go into production on Iron Man 2 and the production insurance won’t allow him to compete in a full wrestling match. Photos above courtesy of WWE. Thanks to /Film reader Jason G for the tip.
