• Internal Changes Discussed For WrestleMania 39
WrestleMania 39 will be Triple H’s first WrestleMania as the head booker of WWE, but the show might get affected by WWE’s upcoming sale.
In January, Vince McMahon returned to the Board Of Directors and became The Chairman once again.
He’s back to sell the company and to ensure that they get the best deal possible, ahead of the upcoming RAW/SmackDown/NXT TV contract negotiations.
According to Bloomberg, Vince is asking for $9 billion to sell the company, which is 37% higher than WWE’s current market value of $6.5 billion.
Since Vince’s return in January and the news coming out of WWE being up for sale, the stock has risen by 30%.
CNBC then reported that WWE will meet with potential buyers in April (after WrestleMania 39) for first-round bids.
In February, WWE CEO Nick Khan said he hopes the sale will be complete in the next 3 months.
In an update from PWInsider, WWE’s internal approach to WrestleMania this year is significantly different than previous years.
Some cost cutting measures are being discussed, so they can impress potential buyers by reducing the cost and increasing the profit generated from WrestleMania Hollywood.
The goal right now is to present the sleekest & strongest WWE they can.
