Appearing on CNBC to talk about his Zoa Energy drink, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was asked about the WWE sale and what the future holds for the company.
Johnson said that WWE is an “exciting brand” and went over how his grandfather, his father, and obviously himself all wrestled for the McMahons throughout the past several decades.
He said he was lucky to have tremendous success in WWE and it’s an attractive company and wished Vince and the whole company all the best in their hunt for a buyer.
Asked if Vince can disassociate himself from the company if he sells, The Rock said probably not and they have to find a buyer that share the same enthusiasm about WWE like Vince has.
“There’s nothing like WWE. They have to share the same passion that Vince has for the company and for the world of pro wrestling which isn’t always easy to do,” Johnson noted.
