Rourke's First Opponent

Following the recent success of his new movie "The Wrestler", Mickey Rouke announced today that he would be joining the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment Inc) from April of this year.

Some regard the choice as a poor decision given the actor's retirement from the boxing ring in 1995, already being deemed too old to sustain any notable fight length.

Rourke will be taking on the role of his character in the film "Randy "The Ram" Robinson", his first fight being the main event at Wrestlemania 25, to be held in Houston in April.

Rourke's opponent in that fight will be "Stone Cold" Steve Austin who is due to be inaugurated into the WWE hall of fame that evening.

Should he win the Best Actor oscar in February for the role, Rourke will be putting the award on the line for the fight. Were Austin to win, the Academy would recognise him as the Best Actor of 2009.
