Mickey Rourke & Jericho @ WrestleMania
The last word coming out of WWE was that the plan is for Mickey Rourke to be at ringside for WrestleMania 25 and get involved in the finish of Chris Jericho’s WrestleMania match in some way. The working idea involves them building Rourke up as a former boxer so the crowd would pop and the punch to Jericho would have an effect.
As far as Jericho’s match goes, Vince is telling people he has the idea covered, but nobody seems to know what that idea is. One name that has came up as a rumor for his opponent is Jerry Lawler. Lawler is a legend and has been putting over how appalled he is each week at Jericho’s actions. Also, Lawler has never competed at WrestleMania and at 59 years old, it’s doubtful he will ever have another opportunity. Lawler still works some independent matches and could probably pull off a good match with whoever is in his corner and with Jericho’s abilities.
