Mickey Rourke WILL be at WrestleMania on April 5! - Los Angeles Times

Despite recent reports of award-winning "The Wrestler" actor Mickey Rourke focusing on his film career, he will definitely be in Houston at WrestleMania 25 on April 5.

At least that's what I was just told by a publicist for Wrestlemania.

But will Mickey jump in the ring? Or will he be dragged in?

One never knows.

Monday night on "RAW," Chris Jericho challenged WWE Hall of Famers (Jimmy Snuka, Roddy Piper and Ricky Steamboat) to a match at the 25th anniversary of WrestleMania on April 5 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas.

All of these dudes are FOMs. This grudge match was started when Mickey Rourke challenged Chris Jericho on the SAG Awards red carpet.

But then Mickey backed down when confronted by Chris on "Larry King Live." Naturally, Mickey’s friends have now decided to confront Chris on Mickey’s behalf.

At the end of last night’s challenge on "Monday Night RAW," Chris offered to buy Mickey Rourke a front row seat to WrestleMania.

He also promised that if Rourke shows up, he won't be responsible for what happens to the Academy Award nominee and his pals.

Let's just hope there are no staple guns around that night.

Will you watch the show to see what happens? How could you not?

And is there gonna be a plastic surgeon on call?
