In recent days there has been a lot of talk about Vince McMahon and his presence back to being "cumbersome" in the WWE backstage. Apparently, however, if initially many were convinced that Vince wanted to destroy everything created by Triple H and associates with his return, now decidedly different words emerge from insiders close to WWE.
As reported in Bill Simmons' latest podcast, with these words that were later also transcribed on the pages of the Ringside News site, it seems that Vince McMahon appreciated the fact that he had taken a lot of work off his shoulders, with the well-known journalist stating: "I don't think so.
I think Vince is very happy with where the company is now and how it is made up, certainly that is what has been conveyed to me… What the situation told me and I certainly have the experience to say is 'Ok, I am now 77 years old.
I want to explore our strategic alternatives. Could it be sold? Is there a possible merger out there? What would make the most sense for the company?'"
Backstage news on Vince McMahon
In the last few hours, there has been a lot of talk about the possibility that the owners of AEW are the ones who would buy WWE, as was done with ROH, the problem is that WWE definitely has much higher costs than Ring Of Honor and it would not be an investment that everyone could afford.
But let's see how PW Insider had considered this hypothesis, just a few days ago, whose journalists on his pages have written as follows in the last few days: "First if Vince McMahon is going to sell, he will sell for several billion dollars, he will give the total power of the WWE to someone who will use it from now on (at most he could make a deal with some competent lawyer).
In exchange for money, he agrees to relinquish the power of his inheritance. He may hope to carry it on but once he sells, he leaves any kind of control unless he then finds a way to buy it back. I'm sure the Khans could pool the money to buy it if they wanted but it would be very expensive and as mentioned above, if the TV rights and their deals change for the worse, it's also a bad investment. WWE and its future have become really, really dependent on broadcast rights."
