• The Rock Breaks Silence On WWE Being Up For Sale

During a recent interview with CNBC, WWF Legend & Hollywood Superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was asked about his views on WWE being up for sale with Vince McMahon becoming the Chairman again.

Below is what The Great One said:

“Well, I can tell you this, it’s an exciting brand, it’s a brand that I’ve been fortunate enough to have tremendous success in over the decades and also, for your viewers here in the business world who may not know, the lineage goes way back, multi-generational with the WWE.

My grandfather wrestled for Vince McMahon Sr. in the 70s, my dad wrestled for Vince McMahon in the 80s and then I came along with my bad haircut and fanny pack and I continued to wrestle for Vince too so we’ve seen tremendous success over the years.

I think it’s a very attractive company, I’m excited and I wish Vince and that company all the best.

I would (agree with the point that a WWE sale might not happen unless the buyer allows Vince McMahon to still be in charge) and that’s a great point. I think with the world of professional wrestling and the world of WWE, it’s so unique.

The fan base is very large and very passionate and there’s nothing like the WWE so I think with the new owners, if there are new owners, and acquirers that are gonna come in, I think they have to share that same passion for the company and for the world of pro-wrestling which isn’t always easy to do.”
