Everybody’s got a price–and that’s not just true for the Million Dollar Man. WWE revealed their quarterly financial results today, and the company’s CEO had some surprising answers for one question in particular.

In a conference call regarding the company’s financial results, Vince McMahon was asked if, in the wake of UFC and AT&T deals, he’d ever consider selling his majority stake in WWE.

“We’re open to everything,” McMahon said, adding that “controlling our own destiny is important to us.” He also said, “If the right deal came along we’re listening.” These reports come courtesy of the Wrestling Observer Twitter account.


Certainly, this is no guarantee of a sale, and not even an indication that anyone is interested. The number of companies that would be interested in or able to make a purchase of a massive media company like WWE is very small, but not impossible in this world of media mergers and acquisitions. Disney bringing such disparate brands as Marvel and Star Wars under its umbrella is an example of the type of deal this would have to be.

Still, even with those caveats in mind, it’s surprising to hear McMahon talk so frankly about someone else potentially owning WWE, as it’s been so closely associated with him personally–through both highs and lows–for many years.
