Chael Sonnen to Join TNA Wrestling? Or WWE?


Chael Sonnen should start paying rent in the news because it seems like he’s made it his new home.

Which isn’t a bad thing for anybody.

He’s entertaining and when he speaks, people listen whether they like him or not.

He sells his style, his skill set, his mouth, his talents, basically he sells himself to the masses in large quantities.

However he just retired from the sport of MMA. What else could he possibly do?


In a previous article SciFighting mentioned that he went on the “Talk is Jericho” podcast not too long ago and this is what the former number 1 UFC Contender in two different weight classes had to say:

“I got a call about two days before I was suspended, Sonnen said on the “Talk is Jericho” podcast. “A WWE exec calls me up, and he said, ‘We read what you’re going through, we’re not interested.’ So I’m thinking, ‘why did you call me?’ He said ‘If you were 24 years old, you’d be making a whole jackpot full of money … but we think TNA is going to be calling you and if they do, we want back in the game‘ So I was like, OK, now at least I get we’re you’re coming from.”

It is more than likely the outspoken Sonnen will get  a call from TNA as they are more than ok with recruiting active MMA fighters to participate on their shows.

King Mo is on the regular Thursday night edition on Spike TV and Tito Ortiz and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson have both been involved with storylines in the promotion.

If TNA chooses to recruit Chael they will either get a huge addition in the “mic skills” category or Sonnen will receive a massive offering for the WWE who is no stranger to recruting Mixed Martial Arts practitioners as well.

Ken Shamrock and Dan “The Beast” Severn have both appeared on pay-per-views and RAW events in the 90’s but Sonnen would be a huge boost for selling matches and trash talking opponents as MMA fans already know.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
