Pound for Pound boxing King Floyd Mayweather Jr. is extremely fond of money. And the World Wrestling Entertainment or the WWE also loves drafting in superstars from their respective fields to increase the credibility of their profile and raise huge amounts of money through commercialization. As a result, it comes as no surprise that the undefeated champion boxer is set to return to the professional wrestling ring once again come Wrestle Mania 29, scheduled to be held in April 2013at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, capable of holding a capacity crowd of 80,000.
This news has been confirmed by the boxer himself. Mayweather Jr. was in New York recently for an interview with Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg, and it was during this interview that he announced that everything was in order for his return to the WWE come Wrestle Mania 29 in 2013. The radio interview was recorded and the video released on YouTube, which has since gone viral. This will not be the first time that Floyd Mayweather Jr. appears in the WWE ring, as he already made an appearance in 2008 when he punched and busted the nose of The Big Show.
The man, who is known to his fans as The Money, stated that the action in the WWE is much more realistic than he initially thought. However, it will still not be as realistic as the astronomical sum of money he stands to make from his appearance.
According to reports, he pocketed a cool $ 20 million during his last appearance in the WWE in 2008 and since then, the marketability of Floyd Mayweather Jr. has undoubtedly increased even more. However, with everything confirmed, the role that he will be playing is something that has not been confirmed by The Money yet.
