• “I’m hearing rumours WWE may sell to Disney” – Mike Chioda
During a recent appearance on the Such Good Shoot podcast, legendary WWF/E referee Mike Chioda discussed Bray Wyatt’s release and Vince McMahon possibly selling WWE.
Here’s what the longest-tenured referee in WWE history said:
“Bray Wyatt, I don’t get it. I just don’t. I’m hearing rumours [WWE] may sell to Disney. So, you know, they sell to Disney and stuff like that man. Could be a lot of money. And they’re just trying to cut their roster.”
Chioda also talked about Rey Mysterio’s status with the WWE:
“My buddy, Rey Mysterio just stayed ay my house last week when they were in Tampa. You know, he went into negotiations with Vince…his stuff almost didn’t work out with Vince. He didn’t want to deal with Hunter, he wanted to deal with Vince.
I mean it’s like me, Hunter told me, ‘hey, I want to see you go out strong in your career’ a couple years ago, and I even moved to Tampa for better living better beaches.
And plus, you know, if I have to, I’d start working with the PC in Orlando. Then I had surgery on my shoulder, rotator cuff and to fix bicep tears. And then I get f**king released during a pandemic.”
WWE President Nick Khan recently said that Vince McMahon is open to the idea of WWE being sold (tap here to read more).
