Washington, Jan 29 (ANI): American actor Mickey Rourke has managed to anger real-life wrestler Chris Jericho with his TV threats of a match.
The Wrestler star offended Jericho with his comments at the Screen Actor Guild Awards on January 25, when he said he has plans of taking on the WWE wrestling star at the upcoming WrestleMania event in Houston, Texas.
Chris Jericho, you better get in shape because I”m coming after your ass, Contactmusic quoted him as saying on the red carpet at the SAGs.
The threat is said to have sparked a war of words on CNN show Larry King Live on January 27, when the fighter and the movie star faced off.
I don”t have respect for you… Be careful what you wish for, Mr. Rourke, Jericho said.
Rourke just grinned at the remark and answered him back.
Im gonna take the high road, brother, and just wish you all the best, he said. (ANI)
