WWE star calls out Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney

BY foxsports • April 16, 2016

Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney has been challenged to a wrestling match by WWE star Sheamus.

Surprisingly, this isn't the first time Rooney has had a run-in with a WWE wrestler.

Back in November 2015, the 30-year-old -- who was a spectator at a WWE Raw show -- slapped down Wade Barrett after the British wrestler left the ring to confront him.

And now Sheamus has called out Rooney live on football-based talk show Soccer AM ahead of the WWE Live Wrestlemania Revenge tour in Manchester next week.

Oh, and in case you haven't seen it, here's the striker taking down King Barrett:

Surely, Sheamus will provide him with more of a challenge!
