NEWCASTLE star Joelinton must be looking to audition for the WWE.

The Brazilian, 27, is known for his aggression on the pitch.

But he took it too far as the Toon took on Chelsea at St James' Park on Saturday.

Reece James was the recipient of a nasty foul by the tough midfielder that seemed to belong in a wrestling ring.

After the England full back danced around his opponent, Joelinton came biting back with a challenge.

The incident saw Newcastle assistant Jason Tindall get involved with James, who appeared to shout "Sit down" to the coach.

That moment was the precursor to the Blues skipping having a game to forget.

James was given his marching orders in the 73rd minute after picking a second yellow card.

Eddie Howe's side were in ruthless form against Mauricio Pochettino's side.
