Vince McMahon returned to WWE, and fans are not pleased with this decision. #FireVince is trending, along with other calls for WWE to do better. Endeavor is aware of this controversy, but the deal will continue.
While speaking with CNBC, Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel said that they’re not the new owners yet. The whole deal still has to pass the regulatory approvals process, but the new company will be publicly traded under the TKO name when the government approves the merger.
Vince McMahon is also set to become majority shareholder of WWE once again, as soon as the deal goes through. This also irritated many fans.
We asked around about this situation with Vince McMahon and the latest controversy. A tenured source in WWE told Ringside News that “even if they did witness something they didn’t like, do you think they’d let that leak out now?”
We’ll have to pay close attention to this story, but it’s pretty clear that Vince McMahon is back in control of WWE, and Endeavor is putting their trust in his decision-making process. That being said, it’s impossible to ignore the controversy.
Endeavor has a ton of money locked into this deal to merge WWE and the UFC. They don’t want to wreck their own bags by putting out negative press about Mr. McMahon, and that could give him another “get out of controversy card,” so he will continue with business as usual.
