Chael Sonnen Contacted By A WWE Exec To Join The Company

During his appearance “Talk Is Jericho” with Chris Jericho earlier this week week, former UFC star Chael Sonnen talked about a call he got from a WWE executive about the possibility of him joining the company only a few days before he was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and fired from the UFC and FOX Sports for failing multiple pre-fight drug tests.

Heres what Sonnen said about that call:

“I got a call about two days before I was suspended, A WWE exec calls me up, and he said, ‘We read what you’re going through, we’re not interested.’ So I’m thinking, ‘why did you call me?’ He said ‘If you were 24 years old, you’d be making a whole jackpot full of money. But we think TNA is going to be calling you, And if they do, we want back in the game.’ So I was like, OK, now at least I get we’re you’re coming from.”
