Mickey Rourke won't be at WrestleMania 25 after all

That's according to an Associated Press report, which states:
HOUSTON – A spokeswoman for actor Mickey Rourke says he won't be taking his role as a professional wrestler into a real-life ring after all.

Paula Woods told The Associated Press on Wednesday night that Rourke will not wrestle WWE superstar Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania 25 in April at Houston's Reliant Stadium.

Woods wrote in an e-mail that the Oscar-nominated actor "will not be participating in Wrestlemania. He is focusing entirely on his acting career."
This comes after an appearance by Rourke on Larry King Live where Chris Jericho joined the party via satellite. Jericho and Rourke exchanged barbs, which would make one assume a match was in the works. Apparently that isn't the case.
