Mickey Rourke Wants To Fight Elon Musk (For Johnny Depp's Honor)

Earlier this month, we asked, "Has anybody seen Mickey Rourke?" It truly was a mystery what in the hell Mickey Rourke has been up to, but now we finally have the answer to that question and that answer is challenging Elon Musk to a fight on Instagram:

Like his character in The Wrestler putting on tights, Mickey Rourke has successfully squeezed himself into an uncomfortable situation. Musk and Rourke couldn't be two more different people making the prospect of them fighting as bizarre is it is exciting. I know Musk bragged about his martial arts training on Rogan's podcast and has the age advantage, but Mickey possesses a type of crazy that Elon will only understand after having his face rubbed against the cage like it's parmesan. My money is on Rourke is what I'm saying, but no matter who you bet on, to explain how we got here, we have to first backtrack to Elon Musk and Jonny Depp's original beef.

You might have (Amber) heard about Johnny Depp's contentious divorce with Amber (Heard.)

So now we're back to Mickey Rourke, who stepped in to defend his friend, Depp. This isn't the first time Rourke has gone to bat for Depp. Rourke spoke out on behalf of Johnny Depp all the way back in 2016, referring to Depp as "not a violent guy" after the initial abuse allegations were levied against him. So it makes sense then that Rourke would take to the mat in the place of his allegedly non-violent friend, and that's how you end up with the divorce of two people, causing an entirely different set of seemingly unrelated people to potentially bare-knuckle brawl inside of a cage. Kramer vs. Kramer would have been even more interesting with an Ali vs. Frazier undercard.
