WWE announced on Friday that the 34-year-old will join Sheamus – who previously had a run-in with none other than Wayne Rooney – and Cesaro, to form a three-man tag-team which will face “The Shining Stars” and Bo Dallas in a six-man clash at Munich's Olympiahalle.

“What a great way to make my debut!” said Wiese, whose last professional football match was with Hoffenheim in January 2013. 

“I worked hard for this moment and can't wait to get in the ring with Cesaro and Sheamus.”
