Saudi Arabia may be buying WWE, Stephanie McMahon

resigns as CEO: report
Vince McMahon, just back from exile, may have already pawned off his empire to a brutal government looking to sportswash its evils

If Vince McMahon has indeed sold WWE to Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, well, that’s something every wrestling fan knew could happen for a while. Though no deal has yet been officially confirmed or even addressed, it’s always been a distant buzz in the ether. Rumors of a sale of the company have been louder, though, since Nick Khan came aboard (big deals are what he does). Combine that with WWE running shows in Saudi Arabia — despite all the flashing, blaring reasons to not do so — and the connection was relatively easy to make for anyone who wanted to connect the dots.
