During the recent earnings call for the company, Nick Khan provided a positive update on the TKO transaction, expressing continued enthusiasm for the merging of UFC and WWE. He revealed that they are anticipating the deal to be finalized in the second half, further solidifying their commitment to the successful collaboration between the two renowned entities.

That landmark deal with Endeavor was announced right after WrestleMania 39, and it rocked the world of sports entertainment in the process. Nick Khan certainly seemed excited about the possibility of those two merging forces in the future.


WWE is also deeply engaged in media rights talks for RAW and SmackDown. It’s anyone’s guess where WWE will land when those talks are finalized. Obviously, a lot of factors are at play.

It was also noted during that call that Vince McMahon has taken a medical leave of absence. This is due to his spinal surgery, and Nick Khan made it clear that they are going to respect his privacy.

WWE has a lot of things in the pipeline, and there is also a lot going on outside the pro wrestling world that could affect those deals. Either way, WWE is still making big profits, and they have already achieved records in sponsorship money this year, which is certainly a sign of continued interest.
