The Rock Says He Recently ‘Connected’ With Vince McMahon WWE

WWE officially announced their sale to Endeavor the night after WrestleMania 39 last month, with the deal set to be finalised later this year.

Many people within the wrestling world have given their thoughts on the sale, and now Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has weighed in.

Speaking to CNBC’s Squawk on the Street, The Rock discussed the WWE sale, even saying he ‘just connected’ with Vince McMahon.

He said:

“There have been some big deals in the wrestling space, yes. I just connected with Vince the other day.”

The Rock was then asked about how he sees the partnership between Vince and Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel going.

He answered:

“I see smooth sailing. They’ve known each other for a very long time. We all have, as a matter of fact, and I see smooth sailing with this. This has been a long time coming.

“Think about where Vince started. I often talk about my seven bucks moment, how I had seven bucks in my pocket when I was cut from the Canadian Football League. Vince had his seven bucks moment as well when he leveraged every dollar he had for the very first WrestleMania. Years later, he creates this merger with Ari that is in the billions of dollars. I see, when I say smooth sailing, these guys are adamant on creating an incredible conglomerate that is going to entertain the masses.

“Between WWE, UFC, Bullriding, and probably other things that are coming down the pipe, I’m excited about this merger.”
