According to Uproxx, this news came up when Canadian sports commentator Ron MacLean spoke about it on the podcast. However, he joked about Ryan and The Weeknd buying the Ottawa Senators the hosts of the show Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek took that into serious discussion.
Also, Ryan has shown his interest in buying the team when he appeared on The Tonight Show. “I am trying to do it. It is very expensive. I need a partner with very deep pockets,” said Ryan.
