WWE President and Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan spoke to Forbes and discussed the interest in selling WWE in a few years We haven’t discussed it once. We haven’t thought about it. We are excited to be featured on FOX television. I emphasized the emphasis of being on broadcast television and how important it is to us during the earnings call.
So I also love what we are doing with NBC. Outside of that, there has been no internal or external dialogue about the possibility of selling the company.
According to Forbes reports, NBC Universal wanted to buy the rights to RAW and SmackDown but could only pay for RAW. On the other hand, Nick Khan highlighted that WWE finished making television rights agreements until its television rights negotiation fees expire in 2023.
