Another Twitter war, revolving around a WWE superstar, played out last night. This time it was started by WWE’s reigning Intercontinental Champion Wade “Bad News” Barrett, who confronted Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney about diving to get a penalty in the fifth round of the FA Cup against Barrett’s home town team of Preston, England.
Stone Cold Steve Austin and English football player Kevin Davies got dragged into the exchange as Barrett challenged Rooney to a fantasy tag team match at Wrestle Mania 31.
