VIDEO: Chris Jericho vs Mickey Rourke, WrestleMania 25

Now that the Oscar race is over, Mickey Rourke had no reason to put off this adventure...the repot below is a little naive, though, about how this might have affected his Oscar chances.. nobody's saying it's fair, but it is a reality..

Hollywood tried hard to stop Mickey Rourke from donning his tights at WrestleMania, but the star of The Wrestler couldn't be contained. In a match Sunday night in Houston against Chris Jericho, Rourke laid his rival out with a quick left hand.

OK -- so it's definitely not the opera, but the hypocrisy of Mickey Rourke's people not wanting him to get involved with wrestling is the same garbage reasoning behind why comedies never win Academy Awards: Inherent snobbery which equates popular culture with trash. And while wrestling and its corny plotlines may very well be the McDonalds equivalent of sports, Mickey Rourke's performance in The Wrestler has nothing to do with how he acts outside that ring.
