WWE pay-per-view historically took place on Sunday nights until recent years, when the company started changing things up. That Sunday night pay-per-view model was a bit old, and it also made for a really rough Monday morning for a lot of fans who stayed up all night with their pro wrestling fandom. It seems that the move to Saturdays has been well received within the company as well, but that’s not the only thing changing around WWE.

The company is pushing to legalize gambling on their matches. That could give potential buyers an extra layer of intrigue when approaching that $9 billion asking price. The company is preparing for anything, and the stage is now set for them to introduce some real players in the situation.

A report from CNBC was quick to note that WWE is prepared to accept first-round bids for potential buyers “next month.”

WWE is set to meet with potential buyers for the company next month in preparation for first-round bids, two of the people said. There’s no assurance a transaction will take place.


It was initially noted when Vince McMahon returned to WWE that the company is expecting a sale to take place by the middle of 2023. With first-round talks starting in April, that is a good sign that they are on track to make that goal.

Anything can happen, especially in pro wrestling. Some major buyers with multimedia expertise are preparing to throw some massive dollar amounts at Vince McMahon. We can only hope that the right entity, person, or company ends up in control of World Wrestling Entertainment.
