It's a Soap Opera ~ FOR MEN!

Mickey Rourke to take on WWE star Chris Jericho

HOUSTON -- Listen up wrestlin' (the only way this could be better is if they said, "wrasslin' fans") fans: actor Mickey Rourke says he's ready to rumble (what does this fool think he is...a monster truck?) with WWE superstar Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania 25 in Reliant Stadium on April 5.

Rourke portrays professional wrestler Randy the Ram (I thought that was a porn stars name??) in the acclaimed movie "The Wrestler."

He's signed to wrestle Jericho, for real. (DUM...DUM....DUM!)

He made a surprise announcement Sunday night on the red carpet before the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles. (Really, where else would one make an announcement like that? Other than while appearing on 'Dancing with the Stars', the red carpet before an awards show really is the most opportune moment.)

He said he was pleased by the acceptance of the movie by all the WWE wrestlers - except Jericho.

Then Rourke said he was going to toss Jericho "around the ring like tossed salad." (Okay...wait. Rourke used Jericho's name and the term "tossed salad" in the same sentence. Freudian slip maybe?)

Meanwhile, Jericho, appearing on WWE television, said, Rourke was out of line and that he was offended by Rourke's comments. He said Rourke made "a mistake." (ooooooooooo!)

Stay tuned. (I'm sure next week we'll find out that Rourke really isn't Mickey Rourke, but that his memory was tampered with by the dastardly Steffano and that Rourke really is Jericho's long lost father. DUM...DUM...DUM!)
