Video: Mickey Rourke knocks out wrestler Chris Jericho!

by | 6th, April 2009

FRESH from his acclaimed turn in The Wrestler, Mickey Rourke stepped inside the ring for real, at a recent WrestleMania event in Houston. He knocked out pro wrestler Chris Jericho, who had called him out in the audience, with a single punch – or at least that was how the script went.

Rourke had wanted to wrestle in a proper bout, but his insurers – and his agents – had warned him against it. Rourke is currently working on Iron Man 2, and so he couldn’t don the spandex for a full bout, in case of injury.

Watch the video below (apologies for poor vid quality):
