Default WWE Sold to Saudi Arabia

Been a mental few months for the company. Vince McMahon was told to step down following it being discovered heís paid millions of the companies money to several female employees as hush money.

He then decided f*** it Iím coming back as he effectively owns 80% of the company shares and installed his own new Board and said heís selling the company.

Within days it appears heís sold it to the Saudiís for a not yet known fee but likely to be somewhere in the region of $5 - $6 Billion.

His daughter Stephanie immediately resigned. Rumours it could be the end of the womenís division.

Scenes.

Vince returning and selling the company thereby shafting his daughter and son in law is some top level heel work.

Surely they have a massive shareholding and are going to walk away very rich?

HHH was made head of creative when Vince stepped down and it did improve quite a lot. Likely part of the deal is Vince is given that role back. He literally wants to work until the day he dies.

I have to digest this carefully before commenting

2 of the most popular guys are not in the Saudi good books - Zayn and Owens. Big implications.

Title reign for Mansoor upcoming

Is this true?

Incredible news

Well yes, Steph and Trips will be set money wise (they probably already were) but it was very much a family affair with them due to take over and carry on the McMahon legacy. But Vince comes back, after stepping down due to allegations of sexual abuse, and flogs the whole thing. Itís basically the wrestling version of Succession with Logan Roy selling up and telling his kids to f*** off.

Said it before, Vince McMahon is a great subject for a warts and all biopic.

Heís one of the most interesting people in the world imho.

Itís the snobbery related to pro wrestling that makes people blind to it - heís a modern Barnum for sure.

Heís become a billionaire by selling guys in trunks pretend fighting. Heís honestly an insane genius

It allows some remarkable storytelling - there are 2 or
3 storylines right now which are grey entertainment

Of course the real life shenanigans blow anything scripted out of the water

It is somehow more real than anything else. Lord knows how but itís like a never ending series of show and real life.

McMahon. Flair. Lesnar. Absolute larger than life characters.
