Wayne Rooney slaps King Barrett at Raw in the United Kingdom
Nine months after calling out Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney on Twitter, King Barrett finally came face to face with the prolific footballer at Raw in Manchester, United Kingdom. The showdown didn’t go in the royal brawler’s favor, though.
Barrett approached Rooney, seated with his son in the front row, at ringside. Barrett ripped Man U’s chances at winning the Barclays Premier League while touting his hometown Preston North End F.C.
When Barrett said he didn’t want to embarrass the captain in front of his son — adding that he “experiences that every time [Rooney] steps on a football pitch” — he crossed the line. Barrett and Rooney continued to trade verbal jabs at ringside, but the 2015 King of the Ring winner clearly underestimated Rooney, who shut up Barrett with a slap.
