Watch Man Utd star Eric Bailly hilariously nail WWE star Booker T's 'Spinaroonie' twice against Young Boys
MANCHESTER UNITED star Eric Bailly channelled his inner Booker T during Wednesday's Champions League clash with Young Boys.
United interim manager Ralf Rangnick's highly experimental side drew 1-1 with the Swiss champions at Old Trafford, with Bailly starting at centre-back next to Nemanja Matic, who captained the hosts.
The Ivory Coast international was called up for some crucial defending twice during the encounter, and he did it in style.
The 27-year-old took a page out of professional wrestling legend Booker T's book as he held off the visitors' onslaughts with such athleticism and grace he would probably catch the eye of WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.
First, he stopped an attack with an expert-like tackle. He then cleared the ball with such intensity he followed it up with what looked like the six-time world champion's signature 'Spinaroonie' move.
The former World Heavyweight Champion came up with that breakdance-like move during his amateur years in the early 1990s and it became synonymous to his success in WCW and WWE, just like his catchphrase 'Can you dig it, sucka?'.
The two-time Hall of Famer would pull it off during a match to get the crowd pumped up or after a win to celebrate.
Bailly's extra showboating was pretty unnecessary but absolutely brilliant at the same time and attracted immense reaction.

Booker T has yet to respond, but it's not the first time someone mimicked this move as many wrestlers in the past have tried it, such as Kane, Triple H and The Rock.
