Wayne Rooney’s not only good with his feet apparently – his hands are pretty nifty too.

The England and Manchester United star has been caught on film giving a wrestler a right good slap.


WWE’s Wade Barrett got on the wrong side of the Roonster at wrestling event Monday Night Raw on, erm, Monday.

Wade started taunting him; saying he thought about inviting the footballer into the ring, but didn’t want him to embarrass himself in front of his family.

"I would hate for your little boy to have to watch his own father fail," the giant wrestler goaded. "He gets to experience that every single time you step on a football pitch."

This isn’t the first time the pair have come to blows – they exchanged mean words on Twitter earlier in the year after Wade accused Rooney of diving during a game.
