Streaming service Fite TV has denied claims in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that it is currently in talks with WWE over a potential takeover.
Fite streams pro wrestling, MMA, boxing and kickboxing events, and works with AEW, ROH, MLW, NJPW, among others.
Once the report had been published, Fite representatives took to Twitter to deny the claims.
“Hello! These rumors are not true. We are not in merger and acquisitions discussions with WWE. We constantly appreciate all of your support and passionate comments,” they wrote in response to a fan.

Whether or not they are true, buying Fite would be hugely detrimental to a number of promotions which rely on Fite to supply streaming for their shows.
