Late last year, Wayne Rooney made a memorable appearance on WWE Raw. Confronted by Sheamus and then Wade Barrett, Rooney slapped the latter after he was called out over his performances for Man Utd.
The WWE returns to Manchester on Tuesday - an event which Sheamus was on Soccer AM to promote. After quipping about Rooney's height, the Dubliner offered the England striker an opportunity to step into the ring with him next week.
Wayne, I'll you what, fella. You may be good at Man Utd, you may be good in front of the goal but I'll tell you what, you've got no chance in the WWE ring. Don't worry about King Barrett, he's a little soft. If you want someone hard, if you want a real fight, just take on the Celtic Warrior. I'll be ready and waiting in that ring in Manchester. You can come down any time you want.
Should Rooney accept Sheamus' invitation, it's surely something which Roy Keane will - once again - have something to say about.
