TMZ trolled?: Says Sonnen plans to buy WWE
Chael Sonnen can talk with depth, breadth, and rapidity not seen in sports since Muhammad Ali. And now he has convinced TMZ that he plans to buy the WWE.
HUGE retirement plans for mega-rich UFC fighter Chael Sonnen — he tells TMZ, he wants to buy the WWE when he quits fighting … a company valued at more than half a BILLION dollars.
And Chael’s rep insists he’s not joking, telling us, “It is 100% Chael’s intent to buy the WWE.” In fact, the rep says Chael is already meeting with bigwig friends in the investment world to enact his takeover.
Bad news though — a rep for the WWE tells us the company ain’t for sale … at least not yet … so Chael better be prepared to put a sweet offer on the table.
The rep adds, “We are a publicly traded company, so he’s more than welcome to purchase shares of WWE stock and become one of our valued shareholders.”
This is an obvious troll.
OR IS IT?
