Tony Khan has commented about the possibility of him and his family buying WWE.
Khan told The Maggie and Perloff Show that he is “interested” in the news regarding a WWE sale, but also said any discussion on the subject was preliminary.
“I am interested in the news that there is potentially a sale process and certainly I think we’ve shown when there are acquisitions and transactions, we’re capable of making the big purchases,” Khan said. “AEW is my main focus, but certainly when that news is out there, it’s very interesting. So stay tuned to AEW Dynamite and stay tuned to AEW Rampage, you never know when I’m going to address something. It’s very preliminary to talk about that process. If there is a process there, which it sounds like there may be, I’m interested in being part of it.”
Khan also told the podcast that while he has talked to Stephanie McMahon in the past, he has no relationship with Vince McMahon.
Talk regarding a potential WWE sale has surged since Vince McMahon forced himself back into the WWE Board of Directors on January 6, with McMahon saying he was coming back to WWE in order to facilitate a sale of the company. CNBC reported on January 12 that the Khan family had interest in purchasing the company.
