Vince McMahon: Rourke will be at WrestleMania

OK, now this is getting ridiculous.

WWE chairman Vince McMahon issued a statement to eonline.com that Mickey Rourke will indeed be appearing at WrestleMania 25 on April 5 in Houston. Last night, an Associated Press story quoted Rourke's publicist as saying that the actor "will not be participating in WrestleMania."

"I am pleased that Mickey Rourke will be in attendance at WrestleMania to support the WWE Superstars who support him and the film in which he stars, The Wrestler," McMahon said in the statement.

For those keeping track, Rourke's appearance at WrestleMania has now been on, off and on again within a span of five days.

The key words here might be "in attendance." That could mean anything from Rourke wrestling Chris Jericho as originally planned, to simply him waving to the crowd from the front row. At this point I'm reluctant to even hazard a guess, but I have a feeling that Rourke will either appear as a special referee in a match involving Jericho or be in the corner of Jericho's opponent.
