Manchester United star to partner Stone Cold Steve Austin in tag-team match

Sometimes in football, things can get a little heated on the pitch. We’ve seen the likes of Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira go head-to-head during a scuffle, Joey Barton lashing out at an opponent, and even the legendary Eric Cantona do a flying kick into the crowd.

However none of these have been official fights, but after last night’s rather bizarre Twitter exchange, we could be seeing the very first Premier League player in the wrestling ring!

Although we all wish it would happen, we doubt it will… despite Manchester United star Wayne Rooney agreeing to fight Wade Bad News Barrett at Wrestlemania 31.

Not only that, but Rooney is calling out Stone Cold Steve Austin to come out of retirement to be his tag-team partner, while Barrett is looking to collaborate with Preston North End striker Kevin Davies.

It all started after Barrett accused Rooney of diving, and from there it just got more and more interesting.

Please WWE and the FA, MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
