• Is The Rock Going To Buy WWE? Jim Cornette Addresses The Rumors
During a recent episode of his weekly ‘Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru’ podcast, legendary NWA/WWF manager Jim Cornette addressed rumors of The Rock buying WWE if Vince McMahon plans to sell the company.
Cornette shut down those rumors by saying the following:
“Some people were saying, ‘Is The Rock going to buy WWE?’ I simply could not care less just how rich a movie star he is, he will not be investing $5 billion, all or part of his dollars, into a wrestling promotion or any wrestling promotion for that matter. He is definitely smart enough not to do that.”
Old School WWF Legend Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is currently the #1 (best paid) actor in all of Hollywood, something that past action heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sylvester Stallone never managed to accomplish.
Speaking of Vince McMahon and WWE, the Wrestling Observer recently noted that WWE President Nick Khan has better chances of taking over WWE one day than Triple H:
“I mean it’s kind of a Board of Directors thing, but probably (Nick Khan being Vince McMahon’s replacement), yeah. Unless they went and hired somebody else from the outside, but probably Nick Khan, yes.”
