CNBC Reporting AEW and WWE Merger Being Explored

Updated: Apr 7, 2023

Rumour Has It.

Rumour has it according to a report from CNBC that AEW owners Tony and Shahid Khan are looking at a potential “merger at all costs” of AEW and WWE, including having a role for Vince Mcmahon!

This would be ABSOLUTLEY wild!

Obviously nothing has been confirmed and it is purley rumour as of writing.

As per CNBC:

'The Khans, who also own the National Football League’s Jacksonville Jaguars and the Premier League’s Fulham F.C., could partner with a strategic media company to share the intellectual property while merging the wrestling leagues, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. AEW has a TV carriage rights agreement with Warner Bros. Discovery’s TNT and TBS.'

'The Khans are open to discussing a potential role for McMahon, 77, after a sale but haven’t yet had those talks, one of the people said.'

It is worth noting that elsewhere in the report, it is acknowledged that a merger would be 'a long shot.' We will bring you more if and when it develops.
