Selling WWE Is “Number One Focus” Of Company Investors


The idea of WWE being sold in the post-Vince McMahon era of the promotion is reportedly a priority for investors.

McMahon announced his retirement on July 23, a month after he stepped down as CEO and Chairman of the company due to the ongoing investigation.

Speaking with Wrestlenomics, analyst Brandon Ross said that those who invest in the company have an interest in the company possibly changing hands.

“That potential sale has been the number one focus of investors, really since the allegations against Vince came out at the very beginning. There’s always been this idea that, look, WWE is a pretty small company – there are a ton of larger entities that are looking for content, especially live content and they’d be a natural acquisition target for a number of companies.

“The big question on everyone’s mind is does WWE want to sell or not? And if you dial back or peel back that question, does the McMahon family want to sell or not?”

Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan have been announced as co-CEOs of WWE following Vince McMahon’s retirement, while Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque has been appointed Head of Creative, a role previously run by Vince.
