London, Apr 29 (ANI): American actor Mickey Rourke has revealed that his wrestling match with Chris Jericho was nowhere easy and he ended up with a broken hand.

Rourke, 56, had faced the professional grappler earlier this month at the WWE’s Wrestlemania 25 in Houston, Texas, following a bitter and public war of words with Jericho.

The actor is said to have left his fans stunned after he stood up from his seat in the crowd, clambered over the guard ropes and delivered a punch that left Jericho reeling.

And even though Rourke had played up the smack down for the cameras, he was still left with a fracture in his hand.

“I’m all healed up now. I kept my hand open when I punched so I wouldn’t hurt him,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling the New York Daily News.

And Rourke insists he and his fellow tough man have resolved their dispute off-camera.

“Chris and I went out for drinks after. We’re all good now,” he added. (ANI)
