• Current Favorite Company To Buy WWE
WWE could be up for sale and there’s a list of companies that would be very interested in acquiring the #1 pro-wrestling company in the world.
Various sources have different opinions about this, but Comcast looks to be the favorite.
Brandon Thurston reports:
“Most plausible buyers of WWE seem to be Comcast (NBCU’s parent) and Endeavor (UFC’s parent), maybe Amazon.
These companies and any business partners have to weigh whether they want to do business with Vince, whose scandals Stephanie has previously said hurt ad sales last summer.”
Raj Giri reports:
“Investment firm MKM Partners believes that Comcast (which owns NBC) will ultimately end up buying WWE.”
“NBC Universal (owned by Comcast) has always been the most likely company. In addition to having The USA Network, they also have Peacock. They also have NBC, which could become the home of PPV broadcasts and other special events as it gets harder for networks to get eyes on programming.
Also, by purchasing WWE, they would have control of the asset. They could choose who ran it and how they did so. They would also have control of how it would air and the cost of doing so built right in.
FOX is also someone I am sure that WWE would reach out to, as is Disney. The buyer that makes the most sense has the most important thing that WWE needs, a place to air the product.”
