WWE owner Vince McMahon considering Newcastle takeover

Update : 18 Feb 2014, 04:46 PM

WWE owner Vince McMahon McMahon is reported to be interested in purchasing the club from current owner Mike Ashley, and a bid could materialise in the not too distant future with the Londoner keen to sell the Magpies. But does that mean we’ll be seeing a Geordie edition of the showcase event Wrestlemania anytime soon? Well, yes. We very well could be.

British website have claimed the billionaire has been “sniffing around” the club with a view to making a bid.

They claim a Newcastle insider said: “Vince McMahon has been sniffing around the club and seems keen on pursuing his interest.

“He sees England as an untapped market for his wrestling empire. He has even indicated he could put on wrestling bouts at St James’s Park

“Obviously it is very early days but there is hope the fans may get what they want with Ashley leaving. Buying a club like Newcastle would throw him into the spotlight in England which is just what he is looking to do.”

Could a possible takeover result in the WWE stars making their Toon debut, and vice-versa the St James’ Park regulars entering the squared circle? Highly unlikely, but we’re sure a number of people would pay to see the Ameobi brothers team up with Alan Pardew to take on the Shield, not to mention names such as John Cena, Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan strutting their stuff in the famous Black and White strip.
