Rourke wrestling, AC/DC rumored to perform at Wrestlemania XXV

After a few years where it seemed that UFC would finally send professional wrestling the way of the dodo, suddenly Vince McMahon's WWE is clawing its way back into the public's consciousness. McMahon's latest coup (though this is still at the rumor stage) is landing hard rock icons AC/DC to play at Wrestlemania XXV. The band seems like a good choice for wrestling, as both peaked in the eighties and have experienced a recent resurgence. In additional Wrestlemania news, Mickey Rourke, whose portrayal of Randy "the Ram" Roberts has helped to reinvigorate interest in the squared circle, says that he will appear in character at the event. Though no opponent has yet been set, the fifty-six year old told Chris Jericho to get in shape, because he "was coming for his ass." [Angry Ape] and [UPI]

This whole thing sounds absurd, but it works. I would watch.

absurd is probably the best way to describe Wrestlemania.

It peaked in the eighties? Where were you during the late 90s? BTW: UFC will not top pro-wrestling and it damn sure won't surpass boxing.

I'm pretty sure the PPV numbers were right up there with boxing in 2007 and 2008. No idea what pro-wrestling does.

I would say that pro wrestling's day in the sun was definitely in the eighties. It was a mass property. MTV was into it. There was a Saturday morning cartoon. Hulk Hogan, Jesse the Body, and Rowdy Roddy made movies. It was truly the best of times.

All respect Rourke gained for playing that role will go down the toilet if he does this. Ain't gonna lie, I was the biggest WWF fan when I was a kid. But now the only time you hear about it is when they're doing some goofy sh- like this, killing people with steriods, or setting the fans on fire with protechnics.

Rourke was just on CNN and Jericho called him out on the challenge. Rourke "took the high road" and put his foot in his mouth. Looks like it isn't happening.

No "The Ram VS Y2J"?
Thank God!
