Vince McMahon is supposedly interested in expanding his empire overseas, starting with the purchase of England's Newcastle United FC. The unconfirmed rumor, from, comes as welcome news to many fans of the struggling English Premiere League team, who would take anyone over current owner Mike Ashley. According to an anonymous source cited in the report:

“He sees England as an untapped market for his wrestling empire. He has even indicated he could put on wrestling bouts at St James’s Park

“Obviously it is very early days but there is hope the fans may get what they want with Ashley leaving. Buying a club like Newcastle would throw him into the spotlight in England which is just what he is looking to do.”

With a little luck, McMahon can combine the two events and we'll get to see English Premier League: Raw. Maybe the writing for soccer matches will improve!  And -- fingers crossed -- we'll get to watch some more weird soccer freestyle rapping from John Cena:
