Vince McMahon has been at the center of a scandal in the past year involving allegations of payoffs to keep accusations quiet. This situation has been closely followed by the professional wrestling community, as they eagerly awaited developments. In the end, McMahon reclaimed his position as majority shareholder and Executive Chairman of WWE and has been actively shaping the company’s direction. It seems an ex-WWE star wants Vince McMahon to sell WWE to Amazon.

Vince McMahon’s return to the Board of Directors was viewed as a hostile takeover, as he displayed a new ruthlessness to regain control of WWE. This move was met with a lot of backlash for good reason. Due to this, he was appointed as the Executive Chairman of WWE, following the resignation of Stephanie McMahon, while Nick Khan remains the sole CEO.

Ringside News exclusively reported that Vince McMahon came back to the WWE offices in Stamford last week. He also brought back Brad Blum as his Chief of Staff, just a month and a half after WWE let him go.

With McMahon’s return to the company, the rumors of him selling the company have never been stronger. In fact, there are quite a few big companies in contention for the company right now.

While speaking to Riju Dasgupta, former WWE Superstar The Blue Meanie talked about WWE possibly getting sold to any big organization. The Blue Meanie made it clear that he believes WWE should be sold to Amazon.

“If I owned the WWE, I would sell it to somebody like Amazon because you figure Amazon already has their streaming,” Meanie said. “They sell everything, so imagine being Amazon buying WWE, and you’re buying a product that you can sell and keep a hundred percent of the sales for. To me, that would be a no-brainer.”

WWE CEO Nick Khan also believes Vince McMahon is ready to sell the company. The Rock also believes that WWE’s new owners should be as passionate as Vince McMahon. McMahon will also not require any approval from WWE’s shareholders to take any actions from now on. It remains to be seen who will end up purchasing WWE in the end, as there are still quite a few viable options.
