Mickey Rourke to step into the Wrestling ring for real

/film have the news that at the SAG Awards, Mickey Rourke revealed to Access Hollywood that he may be wrestling for WWE’s Wrestlemania 25, which will be held in Houston, Texas on 5th April:

The boys from the WWE called me and asked me to do it…I said, ‘I want to.’
I’m talking with [Wrestler] Rowdy Roddy Piper about it.

Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler, for which Rourke received a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination, has won acclaim both for Rourke’s performance and for its candid depiction of the wrestling profession. It’s not clear whether Rourke will actually be doing a proper wrestling match, or if it will be more of a cameo-style appearance.

What do you wrestling fans think of that? Would be cool to see Rowdy Roddy Piper try and get Mickey to put on the sunglasses!
