A report on urban celebrity news site MediaTakeout.com says that controversial recording artist Kanye West has been offered close to $10 million to come to World Wrestling Entertainment.
The report states that Vince McMahon and WWE have offered Kanye close to $10 million to show up at 3 events – two television appearances and one pay-per-view event.
Word is that if he accepts the offer, Kanye would have to do some “light wrestling.” According to MediaTakeOut, Kanye is “seriously considering” the offer.
While the idea of Kanye in WWE sounds like a great chance for WWE to get some mainstream media attention, take this report as a rumor at best. Several years ago this same site reported rapper Eminem was training to become a WWE superstar (never happened), so consider the source.
