Stand back, you out-of-shape frail actor types – Mickey Rourke doesn’t just play a tough guy in The Wrestler, he plans on getting back in the ring for real!


The Golden Globe winner tells Extra he “almost didn’t do the film. [But] things worked out.” And now that he got himself in shape for the silver screen, the wrestling king has come calling!


“Now, Vince [McMahon] wants me to do Wrestle Mania in Houston. Chris Jericho, I’m coming after your a**," he jokes. "You better get yourself in shape brother… I’m going to do it!”


Okay so he can talk smack, but is he really going to take on competitors in the ring?


“You bet your a** I’m going to do it!"


Duly noted.
