And go back private so he can do whatever he wants without stockholders holding him accountable.
Apparently it's rumored that the Saudi deal was made today and they are set to go private.

I can imagine the entirety of the women's division may revolt as well as Zayn.

Looks like it was a false alarm. Wwe has not been sold as of yet.

I get the feeling this is a Vince is leaning in this direction and that the virtual game of telephone somehow got it to be "the sale is done" by the time it reached Cassidy's sources.

I called that they'd sell to Saudi and I stand by that until they get bought by someone else. Of all the rumors of who wants them, Noone else will pay what Vince thinks the company is worth. Maybe Amazon but that's a longshot.

It doesn’t normally happen this quickly.

Didn’t Brian Last say when Nick Kahn was hired several years ago that this was the beginning of wwe being sold? Looks like he was right again. Who are his sources?? He’s right all the time.

I’m more interested in his real name, because not for a second do I believe that his last name is Last :lol:

I heard Vince wants 7 to 8 Billion for WWE. No Way any media company is going to fork over that kind of money right now with all of them finding out that streaming wasn't the license to print money they thought it was going to be. Saudi Arabia is buying up tons of stuff in the US right now from Golf tournaments to an entire states water supply so I could easily see them giving Vince a blank check to snatch up another piece of American culture.

I was having this conversation with Mike (not Bern, a different Mike for all you Binsters out there), that they sell to Saudi but will lose all their current media deals when they come up for renewal, from Peacock to Fox to USA to the toys and Video Games. But for the amount of money they'd get paid by the Saudias, Vince won't care. For the die hards who still want to watch he'd bring back the Network, but he'd run more overseas and probably local Saudi and other dictator led companies (Saudi would get Wrestlemania every year). I could see Vince bringing WWE to Russia and North Korea, and he'd probably be fine as long as the check clears.

Man if they go that far off the deep end, it’d really be sad to see.

If the Khan family buys WWE we're basically back in the boat that led us to having AEW being a necessity for the industry in the first place.

That being said, I highly doubt Vince would even consider selling to them.

Unless the Khans can put together an investment firm that fronts the majority of the 6 or so BILLION dollars WWE and Vince would want to see, it won't happen. That said, the longer WWE goes unsold the lower their asking price will have to be.

Just damn, Jay was a big part of what held my wrestling fandom together during the early 00s to mid 10s. This really freaking sucks. RIP Jay
