• Saudi Arabia Is Still In The Hunt For Buying WWE

Rumors of WWE being sold to the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund were put to rest, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t happen later this year.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Saudi Arabia PIF is still in the hunt for buying WWE:

“They’re not sold. Saudi Arabia is in the hunt. They’re one of the companies, one of the places that’s looking for it… several media companies, the names that are out there are all in the hunt.

They’re looking to sell by the middle of the year. JP Morgan is helping them. Saudi would be the only ones as far as if they want to go private, that would be the one. The other ones are public companies.

Endeavor is obviously also in the hunt. There will be a decision made at some point. There’s definitely smoke about the Saudi Arabia story, but it’s early.

It’s too early for the deal to be finalized, but that one can happen too.”

Below is the list of potential buyers:

– Comcast


– Disney

– Warner Bros. Discovery

– Netflix

– Amazon

– Endeavor Group Holdings

– Liberty Media

– Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund
