Mickey Rourke Says He Wants To Make a WWE Return

Nick Paglino

The UK Sun has an article up noting that former Wrestlemania star and Oscar nominated actor Mickey Rourke wants to make a return to WWE at some point. Rourke’s biographer, Sandro Monetti, said the following concerning the actor potentially returning to WWE: "Mickey has great respect for WWE owner Vince McMahon and says he is the man who turned wrestling from a sport for fat guys in speedos to a contest for superfit athletes.

"He wants to help the wrestling community all he can having fallen in love with the sport over the course of that amazing movie."

The article notes that despite not being able to get into the ring at last year’s Wrestlemania because a clause in his film contract prohibited him from wrestling, Rourke claims that he wants to have a "proper match in the WWE one day."
