Well, it happened.

Hollywood superstar Mickey Rourke returned to the professional boxing ring today in Moscow with a TKO win over Elliot Seymour, whose performance will likely put him in line for a part in The Expendables 4.

Seymour (1-10, 1 KO) is a 29-year-old part-time fighter of sorts who ate a couple of debilitating body shots from Rouke (7-0, 5 KO), allowing the 62-year-old star of The Wrestler and Diner to return after a 20-year absence with a triumphant victory, which included his Toby Keith cowboy hat and a near-disastrous attempt to lift trainer Marvin Somodio onto his shoulders.

It was terrible.
