Potential Buyer Surprisingly Ruled Out Of Purchasing WWE? WWE

A source has revealed that a leading media company is reportedly not in the running to buy WWE, despite hopes that this is not the case.

The story of a potential WWE sale has been a big talking point in the company for the past month, since Vince McMahon returned to the Board of Directors to help orchestrate a sale.

One of the leading candidates to many to purchase the company were Comcast (NBCUniversal), who own the Peacock streaming service that bought the WWE Network.

However, WWE CEO Nick Khan appeared on CNBC today (February 3), and when asked about a potential sale, host David Faber told the CEO that he doesn’t think Comcast is in the running to buy the company.

In a Tweet shared by Raj Giri, the founder of Wrestling Inc, Giri wrote:

“This is kind of big. David Faber tells Nick Khan that Comcast (NBCU) is probably not in the running to buy WWE.

“Nick Khan said they’re still bullish on Comcast being possible, but there’s not much he can say about it.”

NBCUniversal currently is the home for WWE Network in the US.

It had recently been reported that a huge change had been announced for the NBCUniversal Peacock streaming service.

Per a report from Wrestling Inc, in the earnings call of Thursday February 2, WWE CEO Nick Khan sated that there were more interested buyers now than there were in the last round when WWE only had two potential buyers.
