Mickey Rourke at "Work"?
The latest word on Mickey Rourke's wrestling future comes from a spokesman who says that the actor will not take on Chris Jericho at this year's Wrestlemania. The new statement says that Rourke is entirely focused on his acting career -- but why would that exclude professional wrestling? I note that Rourke himself apparently can't be trusted to make this statement. Meanwhile, I wonder whether the whole news of yesterday was what wrestlers call a "work," but if it was, what was the point? For that matter, what if today's statement is a work? We could be getting into Andy Kaufman territory if everyone isn't careful. This story may not be over.
