WWE and UFC are set to merge under Endeavor as the parent company, and that could call for many shifts in both companies. That being said, it seems the MMA company is going to stay out of the pro wrestling business.
Click here for a complete breakdown of WWE’s first quarter 2023 Earnings Call.
During the first quarter 2023 earnings call, the same one where Nick Khan revealed that WWE has years left in their deal with Peacock, he was also asked about how a UFC merge might alter another part of WWE business.
Nick Khan was asked if WWE’s business or creative will be changed by UFC influence. He indicated that UFC has shown no signs that they want to have anything to do with how WWE runs their business or creative process.
Endeavor is going to be the parent company over WWE and UFC, which will operate under a yet-to-be-revealed name traded under the stock name TKO. WWE and UFC will continue doing their own things, so that also means Triple H won’t get to throw in his opinion on how Dana White books UFC’s pay-per-views.
We will have ongoing coverage of WWE and UFC’s merger. They expect to have the thing closed out by the middle of this year. For more information on this story, and so much more, keep it tuned with us at Ringside News.
