MORNING NEWS-A-MANIA

According to Latino Review, Mickey "The Ram" Rourke has "agreed to appear at WrestleMania XXV to support friends Rowdy Roddy Piper, Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat, and Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka in their match against Chris Jericho." 

I don’t know about you, but as much as this reeks of a marketing ploy to make WWE even more Hollywood, I’d pay money to see Rourke actually get in the ring with those other three.  I long for the days of ’80s WWF when a fight was fair and everyone had a larger than life nickname (and a part in a cartoon show).  Chris Jericho?  Meh.  Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat?  That’s like a nickname followed by a surname that sounds like a nickname.  Just do me a favor, WWE, and bring back Junkyard Dawg and Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake."  Then you’ll have my $25 or whatever it’s gonna cost.  Throw in a halftime show with Springsteen and I’ll go higher.  "Ehhhhave you evah seen a one treeeck ponyyyyyyyy…"  (Tears rolling down my cheeks, I tell you.)
