Twitter is swirling at the moment with rumors that WWE ( World Wrestling Entertainment) Chairman Vince McMahon is considering buying Newcastle United from the current rather unpopular owner Mike Ashley.
Vince McMahon - considering a bid for Newcastle?
Apparently Vince, who was born in Pinehurst, North Carolina (just south of us here in Raleigh) 68 years ago, apparently first considered buying Newcastle back in 2011.
With Newcastle fans wanting Mike Ashley out of the club, it’s not too surprising that rumors are beginning to surface that somebody may be looking to buy the famous Tyneside club.
Whether the rumors are true or not is another matter.
The rumors are that McMahon is looking to buy a Premier League club, and use it as a possible springboard to increase WWE presence in England, and St. James’ Park could even be used as a venue for wrestling events.
It’s only a rumor, but it’s an indication of just how fed up Newcastle fans are at the moment, that the mere possibility of McMahon making a bid for the Toon has gone viral on Twitter.
However it would only work if any new owner was willing to put some substantial money into the club, and have a vision and strategy of making Newcastle a top four team in England again – and as soon as possible.
That would do it.
