WeWork did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment. SoftBank Group bailed the company out last month by buying a majority stake in the company.

A previous profile of Legere in the Journal also described him as "the world's most relentless corporate pugilist", pointing to everything from the time he tweeted out a list of suggested Verizon slogans that included "screws over customers" to the time he compared AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson to Batman villain the Riddler.
