Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker shows his support for Irish wrestler Finn Balor
Kyle Walker appears to have football and wrestling in common with his England captain Wayne Rooney.
The Manchester United skipper attended a wrestling event in Manchester earlier this season, even slapping wrestler Wade Barrett on camera with his son Kai present at the striker’s side.
But Rooney isn’t the only Premier League star with a soft spot for wrestling after Walker showed his support for the WWE’s Irish wrestler Finn Balor on Thursday.

Walker has been a mainstay of Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham side this season following his return from injury.
The 25-year-old has scored one goal in 16 Premier League games for Tottenham so far this term.
The England defender was unable to help the north London side suffer a 2-1 loss to Newcastle United at White Hart Lane on Sunday evening.
Spurs’s defeat by the Magpies was their first since a 1-0 loss to Manchester United on the opening day of the Premier League season.
