Mickey Rourke to wrestle for real?

EW and Access Hollywood both have an item on Mickey Rourke's comments at last night's SAG awards that he would be "participating" in Wrestlemania 25. Both seem to take this as confirmation that Rourke, who showed considerable real-life wrestling ability in The Wrestler would actually be getting in the ring at the event. That would be a strange, but not necessarily out-of-character, choice for the best actor nominee, who quit acting for boxing in the early '90s.
