WWE.com Confirms That Rourke Will NOT Wrestle Chris Jericho

Nick Paglino

WWE.com has confirmed that actor Mickey Rourke will not be participating in a match at this year’s Wrestlemania. The statement on WWE.com reads, "Shortly after Jericho interrupted the star’s appearance on Larry King Live, a publicist for Rourke, an Oscar nominee for his role as Randy “The Ram” Robinson, wrote an e-mail to the media that stated he “will not be participating in WrestleMania. He is focusing entirely on his acting career.”

As conjecture continues to swirl, WWE.com has learned that while Rourke will not be participating in the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania in Houston on April 5, WWE has, in fact, invited the actor to the event and looks forward to his attendance – as a guest of the company."
