Comcast Considered Front Runner to Purchase WWE; Other Favorites & Their Odds

Thanks to OddsChecker for sending in these odds and write-up:

Sportsbooks name Comcast the favorite to purchase WWE 

 

Vince McMahon is back and looking to sell the company that his family has owned since its inception in 1953. So who could buy the wrestling giant? Well, the books think there’s a pretty clear favorite.  

Comcast is given -140 odds, or an implied 58.3% chance to purchase WWE. Comcast hosts WWE PPVs and their entire video library on Peacock and has aired Raw on USA for decades. Their biggest competition is Disney who’s given +350 odds, or an implied 22.2% chance.  

The Sovereign Wealth Fund of Saudi Arabia can’t be counted out though. They’re given +750 odds, or an implied 11.8% chance to purchase the company. Endeavor Group Holdings, +900, and Amazon, +950, are also realistic longshots to complete a purchase.  

Among the most interesting possibilities is the company being purchased by a competitor. AEW owner Tony Khan is given +3000 odds, or an implied 3.2% chance to complete a purchase. Dwayne Johnson’s Red Bird Media is also given +2000 odds, or an implied 4.8% chance to buy the company. The Rock previously purchased the XFL from McMahon.  

Quote from OddsChecker spokesman Kyle Newman, “It’s strange times in the WWE. The company is gearing up for WrestleMania season, but it’s owner is gearing up for the biggest move in the history of the company. For now, the books are leaning on past relationships when gauging who might have an interest in the purchase, so Comcast is the easy favorite. Could someone else swoop in and buy the company valued at near $7 billion? Wouldn’t be the biggest shock if they did.”
