In a recent Fox News interview, The Rock and Nick Khan were pressed for their thoughts on the possibility of former President Donald Trump making a return to WWE.
Expressing skepticism, Nick Khan commented, “Rock against Donald Trump, I don’t know how that would work out for Donald Trump in the ring.” The Rock chimed in, drawing attention to the positive reception Trump received when appearing at UFC events.
The Rock, who was recently revealed as the latest addition to the TKO Board of Directors, discussed WWE’s monumental $5 billion deal with Netflix during the interview. As part of this groundbreaking agreement, WWE’s flagship show, Monday Night RAW, is set to move to the streaming platform for the next decade, starting in January 2025.
Notably, The Rock’s involvement in the deal granted him full ownership of his iconic ring name, a name that had been under WWE’s control until this point. In a separate CNBC interview, the 10-time WWE champion shared his enthusiasm about joining the TKO board, stating, “I’m excited, and I’m always looking to grow. I like to say that I’m a builder of things, and I enjoy building. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. With something like this, everything I do and everything I touch, there 100% is a deeper meaning to it.”
The Rock further elaborated on his decision to become a TKO Board member, shedding light on the meaningful aspects of the role. This move comes after considering various offers in the past, and The Rock appears poised to contribute to the growth and development of TKO in a meaningful way.
