The Rock was asked about the upcoming WWE/UFC merger during his recent appearance on CNBC’s Squawk on the Street

It was confirmed last month Endeavor reached an agreement with WWE to acquire the company where WWE will merge with the UFC to form a new sports and entertainment company. The deal is expected to close by the end of this year. 


“There’s been some big deals in the wrestling space (he laughed). Yes, we can talk about that in a second. I just connected with Vince the other day. I see smooth sailing with those guys (Ari Emanuel & Vince McMahon). They’ve known each other for a very, very long time. We all have as a matter of fact and I see smooth sailing with this. This has been a long time coming. When you think about where Vince started, I often talk about my seven bucks moment and how I had seven bucks in my pocket when I was cut from the Canadian Football League, Vince had his seven bucks moment as well when he leveraged every dollar he had for the very first WrestleMania. Years later, he creates this merger with Ari that’s in the billions of dollars… When I say ‘smooth sailing’, I mean, these guys are adamant on creating an incredible conglomerate that’s gonna entertain the masses and I think between WWE, UFC, Bull Riding and probably some of the other things that are coming down the pike, I’m excited about this merger.”
