Wayne Rooney and Kevin Davies challenged to WWE match by Wade Barrett and Stone Cold Steve Austin

As the debate rages on as to whether Wayne Rooney‘s horrible, cheating, blatant dive against Preston was a dive or not, WWE wrestler and Wade Barrett – whoever the hell that might be – decided to call the Manchester United striker out about it on Twitter.


Un-phased by the challenge presented to him by Preston NE fan Barrett, Rooney took to his internet keyboard battle horse and replied:

And then Kevin Davies said:


And so the stage was finally set for a fictional tag-team match between Kevin Davies and Bad News Barrett vs Wayne Rooney… and STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN


Whether Rooney and Davies will receive an invitation to take part at Wrestlemania remains to be seen, as Vince McMahon (whose roles as “guy in charge” and “also a wrestler” confuse me to this day) is the one that decides. Due to Manchester United’s recent injury crisis and that this whole thing is some public chat on Twitter, it looks like we must wait slightly longer for the first time we witness Wayne Rooney suplex someone from the top rope.
