Chael Sonnen tells TMZ he’s purchasing WWE

I’d like to call this story “The Gangster” that cried rich. Either Chael Sonnen is looking to teach the drama chasing TMZ outlet a lesson, with a full troll package — or The West Linn Wize-guy has laundered an astronomical amount of funds to purchase up the WWE franchise and teach them how to cut a promo. He has reported to TMZ (along with management) that he is in talks with the organization to purchase and take over  the show in his retirement . Personally, I’m calling shenanigans. TMZ must of not seen our UFC 159 salaries article. They also must not know Chael.

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.”
