wrestling.JPGChelsea boss Jose Mourinho has announced that he has already made plans to take his children to watch WWE wrestling if his side fail to make it to the Champions League semi-finals. The Special One – adopting his usual calmness in the wake of last night’s 1-1 home draw with Valencia – claimed he would be watching the wrestling at Earls Court on April 24 if his side fail to make the last four.
He said: “”This is no challenge. If we win, we go to the semi-final. If we lose, there is wrestling at Earls Court on the day of the semi-final, so if we’re not playing I’ll go to Earls Court with my kids.” Pies is fairly certain that the supposed Chelsea-Liverpool semi-final is to be played on April 25, so Jose might be able to do both!

    Why anyone would rather watch pro wrestling than football is beyond me. That’s like trading a filet mignon for a Jello cup.

    Jose Mourinho actually did manage to do both, and neither on the 24th! WWE’s Raw wrestling show took place on the 23rd and he attended the event.
    He probably wished he hadn’t as WWE’s Shane McMahon challenged him to a wrestling match and called his Chelsea football players “a bunch of sissy boys”… quite a fair assesment I’d say. :P
