In January earlier this year, Vince McMahon controversially returned to the company after being unanimously elected as the Executive Chairman of the Board following his retirement in the summer of 2022 amid an investigation into sexual misconduct and the use of company money.
The decision was explained as McMahon returning to oversee a potential sale of the company, and CNBC have now provided an update on the status of said potential sale, noting that WWE are set to meet with possibly buyers next month.

Several names have been mentioned thus far as possible names in the hat to purchase WWE, including the likes of UFC’s parent company Endeavour, Comcast, the Saudi Arabian investment fund, and even AEW’s current owners Shahid and Tony Khan.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on a potential sale of WWE as soon as we hear more.
