There was a line on commentary by JBL on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw that many football (soccer) fans will find funny. After WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella delivered a right hand to AJ Lee during their bout on the broadcast, JBL stated it was, “like Phil Bardsley knocking out Wayne Rooney.”
You can watch the clip in a Vine below:
The comment was in reference to a video The Sun out of the United Kingdom leaked on Sunday that featured Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney sparring in his home with Stoke City defender Phil Bardsley. In the video, Rooney hits the ground after taking a stiff blow to the face, presumably getting KO'd. Rooney made light of the now infamous video with an epic celebration following his goal during United’s 3-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend.
