The New York Post reported over the weekend there is a “strong rumor” that John de Mol has made a standing offer to acquire WWE, should Vince McMahon ever decide to sell. De Mol’s software company Talpa Beheer purchased a six percent stake in WWE last year.
A spokeswoman for del Mol issued this statement:
“We do not comment or give explanations on the investments of John de Mol and therefore also not with respect to his investment in WWE.”
WWE issued this statement:
“WWE, controlled by founder and Chief Executive Officer Vince McMahon through Class B shares, isn’t in any discussions about a potential sale.”
