Speaking on the latest episode of his podcast, ‘Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru‘, Cornette confessed that the former WWE champion is “smart” and he will never make such a deal.

He also added that it doesn’t matter how rich The Rock gets, but he will never put billions of his hard-earned dollars into any wrestling promotion let alone WWE.

“Some people were saying, ‘Is The Rock going to buy WWE?’ I don’t care how rich a movie star he is, he ain’t putting $5 billion, all or part of his dollars, into a wrestling promotion – any wrestling promotion, I wouldn’t think. He’s smart enough not to do that,”  Cornette confessed.
