Vince McMahon nearly purchased Newcastle United FC

http://www.theguardian.com/football/...wcastle-united

Quote:
"In 2011, I heard rumours about the owner of American wrestling company WWE, Vince McMahon, trying to buy Newcastle United," says Morten Hansen. "Is this true? I also heard that he had plans of moving one or two home fixtures to the States, and he wanted to showcase professional wrestling matches as half-time shows. Has there ever been other instances of owners who wanted to move home fixtures for a specific team to another place, or owners who wanted who wanted to promote his other companies in half-time shows"


It's hard to tell where the rumour linking Vince McMahon, the chairman of WWE described by the Mirror as "a bona fide, 110% certifiable maniac", with Newcastle came from, but it didn't take long to spread all over Twitter and start to creep in to the football news consciousness. The Newcastle Chronicle duly put the question to the club, but the official response was to brand the story "nonsense" and refuse to comment further. So the whole thing died almost as quickly as it had sprung in to life. And really, it's difficult to see how a rumour linking Sensible Mike Ashley's club with the man in charge of this sort of pantomime can ever have gained any traction.
Do you think there's any basis to this? Would it be something they could try in the future?

Re: Vince McMahon nearly purchased Newcastle United FC

That would have been terrible idea, I have met quite a few geordies in my time, and they really don't seem like the wrestling types.
That would be ecw like crowd of boo's for every competitor.

Re: Vince McMahon nearly purchased Newcastle United FC

Why would vince buy a football club ? He wouldn't pay any money for new players he is too tight. You can imagine him strutting in the locker room and saying 'what's up my n-word' to shola ameobi

Not removing until:

- Drew Mcintyre becomes relevant ()

- Kurt angle shows up on WWE TV ()

- Val Venis makes a suprise return ()

- Bray Wyatt defeats a main eventer at a PPV (X) 'Kane at Summerslam'

- Rikishi goes in the hall of fame ()


SUNDERLAND AFC - keep the faith, Oh It's True, It's Damn true...

Re: Vince McMahon nearly purchased Newcastle United FC

Well a lot of Newcastle fans can't stand the current owner Mike Ashley so who knows how they could've taken to Vince.

I doubt Vince knows much about football and there's a lot of club owners now who don't have a clue so I wouldn't have liked it even if I don't support Newcastle United.
