Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney became an internet sensation once again on Monday night and Tuesday following his star turn on WWE’s Monday Night Raw.

Taking place in Manchester, Rooney went to the WWE alongside former Manchester United greats Ryan Giggs and Darren Fletcher.

Rooney was very much the centre of attention as Wrestler Wade Barrett goaded the Manchester United striker, about his current form and the title challenge being put up by Louis van Gaal’s side.

See video below.

Whilst all was clearly pre-planned, the crowd at the WWE event lapped it up and so did those who caught up on the clips later last night and on Tuesday.

One of the most amusing aspects of the Rooney slap on Barrett has been the initial internet memes and jokes.

There is a strong possibility that the picture of Rooney slapping Barrett will become a meme we see time and time again on the world wide web…
