In the latest edition of The Wrestling Outlaws on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo said that it would not be good if the company were acquired by Saudi Arabia. Russo told: "There are so many rumors circulating these days and it is not easy to understand in which direction the WWE is going.
I hope with all my heart that the company does not end up in the hands of Saudi Arabia, it would be bad in many respects . In the event that an entertainment company like Netflix or Disney were to buy WWE, we would certainly see a huge change compared to the past.
Wrestling would become a completely different thing to what we're used to." In an interview with SHAK Wrestling, Kofi Kingston revealed how the news of Vince McMahon's return was taken backstage: "Whatever happens at the top of the company, it is not under our influence.
We really have no idea what's going on, but our role still remains the same. We train and do our best to entertain the fans with our matches. Regardless of who's in charge or who owns WWE, our mindset doesn't change." The news of Vince McMahon's return to WWE has left everyone speechless.
The latter had announced his retirement in July last year, thanks to his advancing age and the heavy allegations of misconduct that fell upon him following an investigation by the Wall Street Journal. Vince had given way to his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while Triple H had become the new head of the creative team.
The 14-times world champion hasn't hesitated to make numerous changes to the shows in recent months, as well as bringing back several stars who had been released during the pandemic. Vince's return on the eve of the Royal Rumble has once again upset the corporate structure.
McMahon got himself elected as executive chairman and his daughter Stephanie resigned to general amazement. It is also rumored that Vince plans to sell the company to the Saudi Arabian Investment Fund. Other giants such as Netflix, Disney, Amazon and FOX would also be in the running for the acquisition of the company.
