It’s not often I’ll be posting sports-related shenanigans, but this is too bizarre not to mention: The Independent is reporting that WWE Supremo/Monster Vince McMahon is ‘sniffing around’ Premier League football club Newcastle United with a view to an unbelievable takeover.
Current owner and pie-fondler Mike Ashley is apparently quite keen to sell, and Vince is looking to tap into the UK market – and potentially even hold WWE events at St James’ Park.
Whether or not anything will come of it is debatable, but it’s funny to think about for now. You can already imagine the wrestle-related tabloid headlines.
‘NEWCASTLE TIGHTEN STRANGEHOLD ON PREM’ is probably optimistic. though.
