In recent weeks there has been a lot of talk about the organization or company that could buy WWE from Vince Mcmahon, given the Chairman's desire to sell everything. Among the many organizations that could afford this luxury, there is obviously Saudi Arabia, with its principality which is allegedly paying out millions upon millions for various companies related to entertainment around the world.
To bring us fresh news, Dave Meltzer has thought about it in the last few hours via the microphones of the Wrestling Observer, with the well-known journalist who also spoke of the offer made by the Arabs for Formula 1, however declined by the board.
But let's see the words of the journalist: "They tried to buy Formula 1, but they declined the offer, since they didn't get more than 20 billion dollars. Liberty, which owns the rights, has not sold. So I don't think WWE would be a big deal for them.
Liberty is not that tall and unreachable, they have deals similar to the WWE TV deals, where they also bring the Grand Prix to Saudi Arabia every year. They try to do business but they don't try to sell, but WWE tries to sell.
They (Arabs) are looking for something big to buy, a mainstream media company, to buy now."
WWE doesn't want to sell to the Khan family?
Among the many possible buyers, the patron of AEW, Tony Khan, also seems to have popped up, who has made it known that he is interested in the Stamford federation, even if he seems not to have convinced everyone.
In the latest episode of his Drive-Thru podcast, former WWE manager Jim Cornette also wanted to have his say on the possible sale of the company to Tony Khan, with the point of view of the former WWE, however, completely different from the other.
Regarding this topic, Cornette has in fact stated: "WWE has given itself more problems in the last three years than AEW has done, both in terms of bad booking and Vince's public problems and his dishonest activities. So I think what Nick Khan is referring to is, you know, with very thin veiled threats, that's what I'm trying to say, that they don't take Tony Khan seriously and talk about billions of dollars in a worldwide and non-global business.
You know he has all the respect in the world for the boy's father, the boy's father is giving the boy money to play with and that's what they have."
