Vince McMahon remains one of the most controversial names in pro wrestling history. In fact, he came back to WWE last month and wasted no time in taking over the company again. Al Snow also thinks McMahon has WWE’s pending sale on the table.
Mr. McMahon’s return to the Board of Directors was perceived as a hostile takeover, as he demonstrated a strong resolve to regain control of WWE. This move faced significant opposition, but despite the adverse reactions, McMahon was appointed as the Executive Chairman of WWE. This came after Stephanie McMahon’s resignation, as Nick Khan remains the sole CEO.
Speculation surrounding the sale of the company has simmered to a lull in recent weeks after the initial surge of interest in potential buyers. Nevertheless, a former WWE Superstar and coach has stated that McMahon would not have returned if a deal to sell the company was not already in progress.
While speaking during a recent live stream for AdFreeShows, Al Snow talked about Vince McMahon selling WWE. Snow stated that he believes McMahon has WWE’s pending sale on the table.
“He’s at a point where he was pushed out, and honestly, because of his own irresponsibility and actions, he was pushed out. But he now, I think, clearly has a pending sale that was on the table, otherwise he couldn’t have leveraged his way back in. It’s a substantial benefit, otherwise he wouldn’t have had the stroke, the power, the ability to walk back in the door.
I think he’s gonna sell it because, at the end of the day, it’s his. It’s his thing, and he’s gonna go out on top. He’s not gonna let it go under somebody else and then watch them destroy or ruin what he’s done.”
Vince McMahon also increased in rank in the list of the world’s richest billionaires after his return. That being said, McMahon is also facing lawsuits following his WWE return. We’ll have to see whether McMahon will end up selling WWE.
