Vince McMahon had previously said that he is open to the idea of selling WWE and now another official from the company has made similar comments.
WWE Co-President George Barrios was recently a guest on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” program where he talked about the company’s financial earnings in the fourth quarter of 2018.
When asked why the promotion hasn’t been sold to a corporation like Disney yet, Barrios said that they are happy with their strategy but are open for business:
“They’re all smart, they’re all doing great things, I’m sure they’re going to be really successful, we’re happy with our strategy. I’ll quote our Founder, Chairman and CEO, who said we’re always open for business, and speak to people about interesting ideas, but we’re going to keep doing what we’re doing.”
Continuing on the topic, he talked about what the company considers as competition, saying that in the entertainment industry, everything that puts a smile on people’s faces is competition for them.
