The recent WWE and UFC merger has brought about substantial transformations within the company. A notable change includes Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s appointment to TKO’s Board of Directors, indicating a significant shift in the company’s direction. Now it has been revealed that The Rock will have influence on anything of his choosing following his appointment.

TKO Holdings Group sent shockwaves through the professional wrestling world by introducing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as new member of their Board of Directors. This groundbreaking decision has made a profound impact on the wrestling community, sparking excitement and discussions across the industry.

In addition to assuming an executive role, Johnson now possesses complete ownership of the trademark for his iconic moniker. While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the WWE’s hiring and firing decisions would fall under Nick Khan, while talent-related matters would be overseen by Paul Levesque.

Dwayne Johnson would be part of the team overseeing them, offering input on various aspects, though he wouldn’t directly handle hiring and firing. Despite this, his influence would extend to areas he desires, as he holds a seat at the table and his opinions would be considered.


The WWE hiring and firing would be Nick Khan and the talent would be Paul Levesque. Dwayne would be part of the crew that oversees them.

“As far as other types of directions and stuff he would have input but he would not be directly on the firing and hiring.

“Would he have influence? Hell yeah. Anything he wants to have influence on he will have influence on.

“He’ll have a seat at the table and they’ll listen but it will not be his purview.”

The addition of The Rock to TKO’s Board of Directors suggests a potential turning point in the company’s future. As WrestleMania 40 looms just a few months away, the wrestling community is eagerly waiting to see what lies ahead for The Great One.
