Wayne Rooney and Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Bad News Barrett and Kevin Davies in a WrestleMania 31 tag-team dream match?

Bad News Barrett, the current WWE Intercontinental Champion, has been embroiled in a brilliant Twitter exchange with Manchester United captain Rooney, after Barrett, who hails from Preston, accused the England international of diving against his beloved Preston North End to win a penalty in the 3-1 FA Cup fifth-round defeat on Monday night.

What started as merely delivering some Bad News, ended up in potential tag-team main event at WrestleMania in six weeks time involving Attitude Era legend Stone Cold Steve Austin and burley Preston striker Kevin Davies.

Davies had the final say
