WWE was making big plans to move into new, multi-million dollar headquarters even before Vince McMahon’s brief retirement period. Then he returned to WWE and ushered in a quick deal with Endeavor which will see his company merge with the UFC. That could be an interesting situation for WWE’s new HQ.

Just because a merger is in place, doesn’t mean everything will be conducted in the same building. WWE and UFC will still be as two companies. That being said, layoff are still a very possible thing right now.

Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE’s situation with their merger will not change the status of their new headquarters in Stamford.

“They’re still going to go….they’re still going to go into the new….there’ll be layoffs and stuff most likely, but they’re moving to the new place. UFC is going to stay in Vegas. There might be some layoffs there, who knows, but they’re going to stay in Vegas. WWE will be headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut. That’s not changing. They’re being run as two separate companies, but they are sister companies, and there will be people who will be working on both.”


WWE’s merge with the UFC will change a lot of things around the company. That being said, Vince McMahon will still run his operation, and they have a shiny new HQ to do it iin.

“Like when WWE had some of their attempts, whether it was running boxing or running the World Bodybuilding Federation, Vince’s side things. People in the company [WWE] were involved in the XFL. A Lot of people in WWE worked on XFL, not the second one but the first one [2001 version].”

WWE and UFC have not come up with name for their new company just yet. We’ll have to keep our eyes peeled for that news to drop. They will be traded under the public stock name TKO, and it surprises us that name wasn’t already taken.

What’s your take on WWE’s merger with the UFC? Do you think this was an easy way for Vince to keep control? Sound off in the comments!
