Chael Sonnen would make an excellent pro wrestler for the WWE but an owner? With ratings going down every year for the WWE, Sonnen’s loud mouth could bring the sport’s popularity back up.
The ultra “charismatic” fighter has plans of buying the WWE when he retires. His rep insists that he’s completely serious, it’s not one of his over the top stunts. “It is 100% Chael’s intent to buy the WWE,” his rep said.
Sonnen is rumored to be talking with some bigwig friends in the investment game to start his WWE takeover, which is valued at half a billion dollars.
This could be over as fast as it started, a rep from WWE says the company isn’t for sale. Sonnen would have to fork over a pretty penny if he really wants to control it.
“We are a publicly traded company, so Chael is more than welcome to purchase shares of WWE stock and become one of our valued shareholders.”
Sonnen has made a name for himself in MMA from both his character and some excellent PR work. If he buys the WWE it may be a blessing in disguise. He just might have what it takes to make the WWE more popular than ever.
