The Khan Family is in the pool of potential buyers for WWE. While Vince McMahon is yet to find a suitable buyer for his billion-dollar company, AEW President Tony Khan believes he and his father Shahid Khan are capable enough to shell out the necessary amount to acquire the juggernaut brand.
In an interview with the Maggie and Perloff Show, Khan declared his interest in WWE’s sale process, hinting that his family might become the new owners of McMahon’s promotion. He said,
“I am interested in the news that there is potentially a sales process and certainly, I think we’ve shown, when there are acquisitions and transactions, we’re capable of making the big purchases, whether my dad steps up with the (Jacksonville) Jaguars or Fulham FC in the Premier League, and he’s done such a great job building up the club and putting resources into it, and we’re playing football at a high level. With AEW, we’ve shown that we can build a company.”
“Even when I purchased Ring of Honor, that’s a very different thing than WWE, but Ring of Honor is a company with 20 years of history and I really have enjoyed running it, and we’ve shown that we’re at all-time highs in terms of every business metric since we relaunched it, and it’s only going to get better. AEW is my main focus, but certainly, when that news is out there, it’s very interesting. Stay tuned to AEW Dynamite and AEW Rampage, you never know when I’m going to address something. On the other hand, it’s very preliminary to talk about that process. If there is a process there, which it sounds like there may be, I’m interested in being part of it.”
According to previous reports, McMahon intends to sell WWE by the end of this year. Only time will tell which individual or organization acquires WWE.
