Speaking to entertainment website TMZ, UFC fighter Chael Sonnen noted that he wants to buy the WWE when he calls it quits on his mixed martial arts career, with a rep for Chael telling TMZ that Chael is not joking and is already meeting with people in the investment world to enact his takeover.
A rep for the WWE told TMZ that he company is not for sale, however noted that the company is a publicly traded company and that Chael would be more than welcome to purchase shares of WWE stock and become one of the company’s valued shareholders.
I love MMA and I love watching the UFC. Chael Sonnen is one of my favorite fighters but I find this hilarious. WWE must be worth at least half a billion dollars and Sonnen has nowhere near that amount of capital. Sonnen’s career in MMA may be coming to an end as a top competitor and perhaps he’s trying to maintain a buzz about himself? Who knows. Sonnen has always said he is a fan of WWE and great friends with CM Punk but buying the public-traded company is a different story.
I just want to add that I am taking a small break from wrestling. I am worn out on it at the moment and I just need a break. I will be checking on WR most days and might comment but I won’t be that active. Thanks for everyone who reads it daily and comments, writes etc… it means a lot guys.
