Vince McMahon does what he wants to and will never stop until he achieves his goal. Fans were witness to this fact this after he made his return to the company and immediately took over WWE once again. Following this, rumors spread like wildfire that WWE would be sold. Due to these rumors, there has been a very depressing mood backstage in WWE.
As fans are well aware by now, Vince McMahon came back to WWE last week and immediately became part of the Board Of Directors. He proceeded to regain control of the company’s Board of Directors as the Executive Chairman of WWE, shocking fans. This was all in the name of a future sale, and there are some serious buyers.
A report emerged that WWE has agreed to sell the company to Saudi Arabia. However, those rumors turned out to be untrue as reports have made it clear that WWE has not been sold to Saudi Arabia.
According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was reported that there has been a very depressing mood backstage in WWE following rumours that WWE was going to be sold.
“The rumors were all over wrestling, and led to a ton of concern among WWE talent hearing them. This included those working the live television taping for NXT where the mood was said to be very depressing as word got around during the actual filming of the show with the belief by many the story was true.”
As previously reported, both Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are opposed to WWE getting sold. WWE staff were also laughing at the Saudi Arabia sale reports. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see whether WWE will end up getting sold in the end.
