Chelsea’s Mount says he attended a wrestling show headlined by Shawn Michaels as a kid
West Ham’s Rice still loves wrestling to this day.
They recently used a shark as their wrestling opponent in the England swimming pool and that caught the attention of WWE Hall of Famer, Edge.
After Rice proclaimed ‘it’s Edge off the top rope!’ The Rated-R Superstar tweeted back ‘go get ‘em, lads’ with the three lion emojis.
Speaking to Lions’ Den on England’s YouTube channel, Rice explained what a wrestling fan he was growing up.
“Playing SmackDown vs RAW, everybody had to do that,” Rice said excitedly.
“And surely you had the action figures as a kid? And the belts! Mate, I was that big [of a fan].
“I used to have the action figures and pretend they’re fighting each other! I’m a big WWE fan. I love it.”
When asked about what their finisher would be if they were wrestlers, Mount decided for Rice.
“You know what he’s got? He’s got a good Tombstone. He did that on the shark, it was good tekkers.”
But who would they face in tag team action out of the England squad? ‘Money Mase’ and ‘Dangerous Deccers’ have their eye on some left-footers.
If England can defeat Denmark tonight at Wembley, they’ll be meeting Italy in the final on Sunday, July 11.
