Defamer has an update on Mickey Rourke's appearance at Wrestlemania 25: There will be no appearance at Wrestlemania 25. From Rourke's publicist:
Mickey was very honored to be asked as he has the greatest respect for WWE however he will not be participating in Wrestle-Mania. He is focusing entirely on his acting career.
Focus on a newly thriving acting career versus wrestling? That's the kind of advice that could keep Rourke away from decades-late 9 1/2 Weeks sequels and Dennis Rodman action movies for years to come.
