SUNDERLAND’S derby hero Jermain Defoe received a less than friendly welcome in Newcastle last night after making a guest appearance at a wrestling show.

Defoe has been the toast of Wearside this week after his stunning volley in last weekend’s derby secured a fifth successive victory over Newcastle United for Sunderland.

However, Defoe was the subject of the boo boys in Newcastle last night after he was introduced as a guest time-keeper for the WWE’s event at the Metro Arena.

Defoe waved to the crowd, but was not well-received, in the latest leg of the WWE’s tour of the UK.
