Vince McMahon’s shocking return to WWE a few days ago brought about a lot of immediate changes to the company. Reports suggested that McMahon came back to WWE in a bid to sell the company. That’s exactly what happened, as WWE is reportedly being sold to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It seems fans are upset over this move.

Vince McMahon’s return to WWE saw Stephanie McMahon’s exit and the company’s potential sale. As majority shareholder, Vince McMahon ensured that he was going to have his way and that’s exactly what he did in the end.

With rumors of WWE getting sold at an all-time high, fans started fearing the worst as to which company WWE would end up getting sold to. The speculation finally ended earlier today.

WWE is reportedly being sold to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It was said that WWE’s deal with the Saudi Investment Fund is more or less done at this point in time.


Unsurprisingly, a lot of fans reacted to the news as they took to Twitter, expressing their utter shock and outrage at WWE more or less selling their souls to Saudi Arabia.

My mind is SPINNING. In WWE really got sold to Saudi Arabia…

nah jokes aside, if WWE is actually purchased by Saudi Arabia. I ain’t watching that s***

One of the more depressing nights in recent history for wrestling.WWE got a real shot in the arm when Vince left and now? He’s in charge and they’re owned by Saudi Arabia. S***

Streets are saying Saudi Arabia bought WWE.Please tell me this isn’t real because holy s*** we’re gonna have an issue.

In Saudi Arabia, you can face capital punishment if you’re a part of the LGBTQ+ community. Many #WWE wrestlers identify as LGBTQ+. Sami Zayn is Syrian decent & isn’t allowed in the country.Women have no rights.All Vince cares about is money & control. It’s disgusting.

So Vince McMahon… A man who retired from WWE due to ongoing allegations of sexual misconduct…… bullied his way back onto the board of directors after saying he was done…… just sell his billion dollar company… …to Saudi Arabia. That. Is. F******. Nuts

WWE has finally more or less been sold and it is not clear what will become of the company in the coming weeks. Keep checking back here at Ringside News as we continue monitoring this ongoing situation.
