Rourke Won't Actually Wrestle at Mania

WWE.com posted the following statement regarding Mickey Rourke’s assumed match against Chis Jericho at Wrestlemania 25 in Houston Texas. He will not wrestle, but will be in attendance:

“We are pleased that Mickey Rourke will be in attendance at WrestleMania to support the WWE Superstars who support him and the film in which he stars, The Wrestler. While Rourke will not be participating, the actor looks forward to his attendance”

It appears that WWE were pushing for a match, but Rourke has been advised by his publicist not to participate because it could put his Academy Award hopes in jeopardy
