Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson could be set to be involved with a takeover for Southend United.
The Shrimpers currently find themselves in English football’s fifth tier, the National League, and, according to the Southend Echo could be subject to a takeover bid.
The outlet suggest that a group are currently in discussions with current owner Ron Martin and, if successful, have already contacted Dwayne Johnson’s production company regarding making a documentary.
It would appear to be in a similar vein to the ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ series that Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney produced after their successful purchase of the Welsh side.
West Ham fan, Ray Winstone, is also named as someone that could be involved if the group are able to get Martin to let the club go.
If not, he runs the risk of taking Southend out of business given that the club only have until July 12 to fulfil any outstanding tax obligations, as well as pay staff.
If Martin genuinely loves the club, he’ll not dig his heels in and should approach negotiations with an open mind.
