Christmas has come really early for football fans.
From today the very best of the Premier League, La Liga, Champions League and WWE collide in the WWE x SuperSport Fantasy Football Feud, right here exclusively to Daily Sun and DailySun.co.za.
WWE Champion Drew McIntyre, NXT Champion Finn Bálor and WWE Superstars Sheamus and Cesaro will go head-to-head for the first time to decide who really is the smartest football fan in the WWE x SuperSport Fantasy Football Feud by predicting the score for seven top matches airing live on SuperSport.
And a very special guest has stepped up to compete with the WWE football fanatics: South African rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and entrepreneur AKA.
The music guru is a fan of Manchester United and passionate about WWE, which inspired his latest album release, Bhovamania. Will AKA let his love of WWE get in the way of beating his in-ring heroes? Stay tuned to the Daily Sun and DailySun.co.za to find out.
The seven games selected feature some of the world’s best teams and players including current Premier League champions, Liverpool, Spanish champions, Real Madrid, Italian giants, Juventus, who have won nine straight Serie A titles, plus Barcelona, Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Ajax and Atletico Madrid.
For the WWE Superstars there’s more than just the WWE x SuperSport Fantasy Football Feud title at stake, there’s pride and bragging rights in the WWE locker room.
The Celtic Warrior, Sheamus, is a lifelong Liverpool fan, while NXT champ Finn Bálor is a diehard Spurs supporter. Those two teams go at it in a spectacular crunch game on December 16.
Meanwhile, the cultured brawler Cesaro speaks five European languages and supports Manchester City, and even beat former tag-teammate Sheamus in a penalty shootout on the pitch at City’s Etihad Stadium.
Cesaro has a little friendly dig at Sheamus in this Q&A and also gives his opinion on the greatest footballer of all time, whether Juventus can make it 10 league titles in a row and whether it’s time we saw a South African player break through to the top ranks of the beautiful game
Drew McIntyre is a proud Scot and supporter of Glasgow team, Rangers, but in the WWE x SuperSport Fantasy Football Feud the current WWE Champion will be determined to use his winning ways to achieve fantasy soccer supremacy.
Who will take the title and the glory?
