First and foremost according to inside sources from the WWE, they have not been sold to Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. However, that hasn’t stopped the internet from making memes and posting about it. So what did the internet have to say about the WWE being “Sold” to Saudi Arabia?
We’re not entirely sure how or why the rumors started spreading late Tuesday night, but according to TMZ, the rumor is that Vince McMahon, after announcing he was rejoining the board of directors, has sold the company to Saudi Arabia, thus making the organization private once again.
What made the rumor have some legitimacy was hours before the reported Saudi Arabia deal, Vince’s daughter, Stephanie, announced her departure from WWE … giving up her role as Co-CEO. Now reports are saying that this supposed deal is just baseless rumors that have gone too far. But the internet is in full-on war mode making fun of the deal and while some know it’s not true, they’re still making fun of it.
