Stephanie McMahon was recently interviewed by Bloomberg Businessweek, she was asked if WWE could be sold to a large media organization such as Disney, 21st Century Fox and Amazon. Here were her comments:

“We’ve certainly thought about it. It would be foolish not to”

Stephanie also commented on her liking of WWE’s business model to that of Disney.

“There was a time when it came across as seedy, kind of playing to barroom brawls. [Now] our lines of business are really more akin to Disney than they are to anything else.”

With WWE’s broadcasting rights up for renewal to keep RAW and Smackdown Live on USA Network and Vince McMahon focused on his partnership with Alpha Entertainment to relaunch the XFL, the possibility of WWE being sold to these organizations are very high.
