    Which 1 Oak fixture and "wrestler" said this about a professional wrestler?  Find out after the jump...

    It was Mickey Rourke!  Former professional boxer, 1 Oak aficionado, and actor extraordinaire in the movie "The Wrestler".  For those of you who haven't been keeping up, Mickey jokingly challenged pro-wrestler Chris Jericho to a match at the SAG awards.  Jericho, who looks like a bird shit in his hair, was not able to take a joke (or at least not willing to not be in character) and went on Larry King live and tried to talk endless amounts of smack to Mickey.  Our boy Rourke of course would have none of it, and dismissively took the high-road refusing to engage. Full trascript here.  And video below:
