Mantell claims he directly overheard a WWE employee out of the company’s HQ in Stamford, Connecticut, that WWE and the two broadcasters are deep in negotiations for a sale and it could take place as early as May.
Despite, Dutch Mantell’s breaking news gaining a lot of traction on social media, reports indicate there is not much concrete information to back Mantell’s revelation.
According to Wrestling News, during a recent investor’s meeting, Vince McMahon did address the possibility of selling the WWE Network to FOX or ESPN but NOT the company as a whole.
