The Rock issues statement to fans regarding his new role with TKO Board of Directors

Last week, TKO (parent company of WWE and UFC) appointed Dwayne Johnson to Board of Directors and he gained ownership of “The Rock” trademark. One week later, Rock shared a video package along with the following statement to fans via social media…

“My honor to join @TKOGrp Board of Directors (who owns @wwe & @ufc)

An historic day of big business with deep and personal ‘life comes full circle’ significance for me. I have the privilege now to sit at the table, that my grandfather and my dad helped to build. Now the fun part – we go to work. We build.

Thank you to my TKO/WWE partners-
