The web is awash with rumours that the Shark is set to join WWE in a $3.2m a year deal!
But is it true?
Well, what we can say is that talks have taken place but nothing has been signed…Yet!
Tim is staying tight-lipped on this matter, and pretty much doesn’t want to discuss it.
But the WWE haven’t been so secretive.
In fact, World Wrestling Entertainment’s VP of Talent Relations Jane Geddes, says that the acquisition of an internet superstar like Tim would be massive for the brand.
“He already has such a following,” “It wouldn’t be hard to make him a legend. His merchandising potential is outstanding” said Mrs Geddes.
In a Twitter post on Thursday, WWE CEO Vince McMahon followed up on the Associated Press’s report on WWE’s new Performance Center by throwing out the welcome mat to all forms of athletes.
“Athletes from all walks of life are welcome to try out.” McMahon tweeted.
One thing’s for sure, Tim won’t be trying out for anything. If they want him, it’s his way or nothing – which generally means cash upfront and no bull***t.
But Will Tim Sharky Join WWE?
Would Tim swap his easy, laid back, pimping lifestyle for the dizzy heights of the WWE?
Would he want to move out to the US and start wrestling and doing TV interviews on a daily basis?
What about the dogs he takes care of?
Well he certainly doesn’t need the money. And he’s already turned a number of big TV offers. But where the WWE is concerned, he has all the assets; strength, character, brandability and a massive following already.
When we have more news on this deal, we’ll be the first to spill it, right here on the officially Tim Sharky website.
