Bad News Barrett calls out Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney after FA Cup ‘dive’
After forward Wayne Rooney’s controversial play sealed a FA Cup victory for Manchester United against Preston North End FC Monday, WWE’s resident PNEFC fan Bad News Barrett offered some choices words on Twitter to the Man U captain.
Rooney won a penalty in the goal box in the 88th minute, earning a penalty kick in a tight game. The 29-year-old forward converted on the penalty to end a near eight-week goal drought, ensuring Manchester United’s 3-1 victory.
Barrett didn’t waste time sending a warning to Rooney for his supposed “dive” that knocked Preston North End from the FA Cup on Twitter Tuesday.
Not one to ignore a challenge, Rooney told Barrett he’d get “Stone Cold” Steve Austin for a dream tag team match, with Bad News joining forces with Preston striker Kevin Davies.
Davies jumped on board, saying he’d start a six-week training camp, which would get him ring-ready in time for WrestleMania.
While the two footballers and Barrett continued to hype the bout, “Stone Cold” offered some invaluable advice to Rooney before the new duo tag-teamed on Austin’s legendary catchphrase.
