After retiring in July of last year, Vince Mcmahon made his sensational return to WWE by rejoining the board of directors and being elected executive chairman. His daughter Stephanie resigned to general amazement and one wonders if Vince will also return to being the head of the creative team.
Following Vince's departure, Triple H made a number of major changes to the shows and convinced several stars to return to the company. The 14-times world champion did not align with the policies of his illustrious predecessor, boosting morale backstage and ushering in a new era.
Now the situation has turned around again. A few days ago, some newspapers reported that WWE had been sold to the Saudi Arabian Investment Fund. However, sources close to the company have denied this rumor. In the latest edition of the 'Hall of Fame' podcast, Booker T gave his candid opinion on the future of the company.
Booker T on the future of WWE
“It is not true that WWE has weakened with the return of Vince McMahon, it is just as strong as it was two months ago. There has been a lot of talk about the company in recent weeks and that's not necessarily a bad thing.
If I think WWE will be sold soon? Absolutely not, but that's just my opinion. It would surprise me tremendously if the company were sold within the next 365 days. Let's wait and see what happens,” said Booker T. “People don't understand that buying WWE is not like buying a house or a car.
I've never been in a position like this, but it's not something that happens overnight. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure of what I'm saying” – added the WWE Hall of Famer. In the latest edition of 'The Wrestling Outlaws' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo said that it would not be good if the company were bought by Saudi Arabia.
“There are so many rumors circulating these days and it is not easy to understand in which direction the WWE is going. I sincerely hope that the company does not end up in the hands of Saudi Arabia, it would be bad in several respects".
During an episode of his Cafe de Rene podcast, former World Tag Team Champion Rene Dupree addressed the possibility of The Great One buying WWE. "Listen, Rocky is loaded but I don't think he's $7.5 billion loaded. But, I'm sure he has a lot of friends with a lot of money," Dupree said.
