• Vince McMahon Selling WWE?
After the most recent mass releases, rumors started that WWE owner Vince McMahon is about to sell his company.
It’s believed that current WWE President (management position, not an on-screen role) Nick Khan is positioning the company for a sale right now.
Former WWE writer Dave Schilling posted the following on Twitter:
“Ummm I think WWE is for sale.
You don’t cut talent assets on this level unless you are trying to maximize profits before a sale.
Fightful Select reported the following:
“A lot of these releases were a surprise to many, and several within the company have already inquired to Fightful about the endgame of said releases.
There is a lot of speculating within about a potential sale down the line, but we’ve not heard that from WWE officials.”
Here’s what Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Live:
“I do know and you can report this, there are a lot of people in and out of WWE and the business, fans, it’s no secret.
Everybody believes Nick Khan is setting this company up to be sold.
How do you say that it’s budgetary reasons when you’re making so much profit?
Well, you say it’s budgetary reasons when you decide the amount of money that you’re going to spend on talent.”
