Popular Sports Franchise Reaches Out To Vince McMahon & WWE About Purchasing Them

We reported a couple years ago that WWE was interested in trying to buy the Harlem Globetrotters. Obviously, despite interest, the parties were unable to come to terms. At the time, WWE's inquires were rebuked but now, the franchise is now seeking a buyer.

A lot has changed since WWE previously had interest and while Vince McMahon was looking to pick up other entertainment properties, that philosophy is out the window after Linda McMahon's Senate losses and Triple H's rise to power.

The Globetrotters contacted WWE to see if they were interested in a deal similar to previous offers but WWE turned them down. One observer commented how they "couldn't imagine" WWE being interest given the change in landscape.

    Why not? I’ve always thought of the Globetrotters as the WWE of basketball.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      You took the words right out of my mouth Chris! But I question just how popular the Globetrotters are these days, considering they are looking for buyers.

    “Oh My God! A Chokeslam right off the basket! Really though, it would be interesting to see what WWE would have changed in a Globetrotters show.

  • WNW Fan

    Instead of the Globetrotters they’d change it to the Skulltrotters. Stone Cold would be the coach
