>> In Jim Ross' latest SmackDown This
column on the WWE
Universe site, he says he doesn't want to see Mickey Rourke wrestle Chris Jericho
at WrestleMania. "...Rourke really doesn't have any business getting in a high-level, memory making match at the biggest event of the year, WrestleMania XXV," Ross wrote. "I loved Rourke’s role as Randy "The Ram" Robinson in "The Wrestler" and even saw the film twice. However, the brash Jericho accurately pointed out that playing a wrestler on film with the ability to have multiple takes for a scene, etc is a far cry from actually getting in the ring live without a net or the ability to do a re-take against a man who is proud, egocentric and not willing to compromise his skill level or legacy to a Golden Globe winner or not."
Ross continued: "Don't do it Mickey. Do come to Houston; enjoy a great presentation at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, have fun, but stay out of the ring. Or do what in the hell you want."
