WWE star calls out Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney

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.
