Wayne Rooney Slapped Wade Barrett In The Face On ‘Monday Night Raw’ (Video)
The WWE was in Manchester, England, for Monday Night Raw this week. And because the WWE is all about athlete and celebrity cameos these days, obviously they made sure English soccer superstar Wayne Rooney slapped Wade Barrett right in the face.
You see, Rooney and Barrett, a fellow Brit, had been “feuding” on Twitter for the last few months after Barrett, a Preston North End FC fan, issued a challenge to Rooney via YouTube:
Obviously, Rooney can’t just hop on a plane and fly to America in the middle of the Premier League season just to make an appearance on Monday Night Raw. And even if he could do that, his contract with Manchester United wouldn’t allow him to actually get in the ring.
However, the WWE went across the pond for Monday Night Raw this week, and Rooney was sitting in the front row. So Barrett talked some trash, then came and got in Rooney’s face so Rooney could slap him from his seat.
Take a look:
Now, if only the WWE can cook up a storyline involving Cristiano Ronaldo.
