Update on Jesse Ventura potentially working with WWE again

In April of 2024, WWE Hall of Famer Jesse Ventura said he was talking with WWE again due to the “new direction” of the company. During an appearance on Frank Morano’s podcast, Ventura provided an update…

“I am back negotiating with them. We’re in talks right now. I have contracts with my attorney right now with WWE. We don’t know right now fully. They want to bring me back under their Legends [deal]. If you go back to WrestleMania 1, there aren’t too many of us alive anymore. It is true. Look, Roddy’s gone, Orndoff’s gone, Andre’s gone, John Studd’s gone… Junkyard Dog’s gone. You have more gone. It goes on and on. I’m getting older. I’m in my 70s now. I just want to open up the door at the end of the wrestling career and see what’s still left there. And it ain’t like I’m going to go back on the mic because, I’ll be honest with you, I don’t even know who wrestles there anymore.”

“I can only say [negotiations] happened because of the change in direction of the company.” (quotes courtesy of PWTorch.com)
