Mickey said in respond to Jericho “so come Wrestlemania 25 in Houston, I’m going to toss him around the ring like tossed salad. Chris Jericho, you better get in shape.” Jericho replied on WWE, “you are out of line. It’s one thing to play a wrestler in a movie, something entirely different to actually be one. Your comments offended me. You made a mistake. It’s the last thing that you and Rick Flair want to do, and that’s to offend Chris Jericho.” Rick Flair who is a wrestling legend talked Rourke into being a wrestler according to Jericho.
