On his recent appearance with The Pat McAfee Show, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared his thoughts on the TKO merger and Vince McMahon’s sale of WWE (via Fightful). Johnson explained that — while somewhat unexpected — McMahon’s choices are not entirely surprising in his mind, given the scope of his vision and perspective since The Rock has known him. You can find a highlight from Johnson and watch the full interview below.

On McMahon’s decisions to sell WWE for the merger: We go way back. No, I never thought he would sell the company but I’m not surprised because he’s always about big picture, he’s always about growth. You think about where he’s come from, from his first WrestleMania to now what the company is valued at, and this merger is really incredible.”
