• Update On WWE Being Sold To Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund
As reported earlier today, Stephanie McMahon resigned as chairwoman & co-CEO of WWE.
Vince McMahon was elected as The Chairman by the Board and Nick Khan will be the CEO.
In her statement about resigning from her position, Stephanie said Vince is leading an exciting process regarding strategic alternatives.
It has been known for quite a few days now that Vince is looking to sell WWE and there’s a rumor going on that WWE has been sold to the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund.
Cassidy Haynes of Bodyslam reports:
“For what it’s worth, I’m told the Saudi deal is done and they’re taking the company private.”
In an update, Cassidy reported the following:
“The deal isn’t completely finalized because WWE must provide notice to shareholders & other parties.
There are legalities to go through, as the company is publicly traded. But, again, I’m told a deal has been agreed to in principle.”
We’ll keep you updated regarding this situation.
