• The Rock Comments On The Possibility Of WWE Being Sold One Day
During an interview with BNN Bloomberg, Old School WWF Legend & Hollywood Actor The Rock / Dwayne Johnson talked about WWE and the possibility of taking up an Executive role in the company one day.
Below are the highlights:
On the possibility of WWE being sold:
“I’ve known Vince (McMahon) for a very, very long time and he’s a businessman. I think the key if there were a sale of the WWE is to make sure that whoever acquires that brand in that property, you’ve got to love the wrestling business.
Of course, you can love the asset, and you can love everything that comes with it, but you got to love the professional wrestling business… because if not, then you could kind of see the writing on the wall; 4 or 5 years down the road, what will happen?”
On the possibility of him taking an Executive role in WWE one day:
“(WWE co-CEO) Nick (Khan) and I have talked about that, and we always enjoy that over a bottle of Teremana. I love the wrestling business. I grew up in it. My grandfather and my dad started here in Canada, where [his father] was born.
So, I’m not quite too sure if a board seat is in my future, but possibly other things are in my future, for sure.”
