Vince McMahon seeking $9 billion for WWE sale

A report on Bloomberg states that WWE Executive Chairman Vince McMahon is seeking as much as $9 billion in the sale of his company WWE, more than the initially reported $7 to $8 billion figure.

WWE is currently valued at around $6.5 billion on the New York Stock Exchange and any sale will be above that figure.

Lucas Shaw, the reporter behind the Bloomberg story, adds that sources who are close to the situation “expressed skepticism” that many traditional media companies, those such as NBCUniversal and Disney, will buy WWE. Shaw said that interested parties include the likes of Endeavor, which owns the UFC, and the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund.

The story also says that WWE already received a couple of acquisition offers, although no mention of who expressed interest were revealed.
