WWE: Latest Update on Sale Heading Into WrestleMania 39 Weekend

WWE's ongoing sale negotiations received an update this week via CNBC's David Faber on the latest Squawk on the Street. Faber noted the progress in the sale talks, saying, "From what I'm hearing, at least from people familiar with the situation, it's shaping up to be a pretty good sale process. Some people say, 'pretty hot and heavy.' And those who were even somewhat doubtful in fact that you'd get to a sale at the end seem less so," before noting that it's still unclear if a sale will actually get done.

Faber then discussed the various potential bidders, once again mentioning Endeavor (saying they'd spin off the UFC into its own company and merge it with WWE while still controlling it), private equity interest and the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund. He also reiterated Comcast, which already has multiple billion-dollar deals with WWE to air Monday Night Raw and WWE NXT each week on the USA Network and house the WWE Network on the Peacock streaming service, is not in the running.

"Something has led to at least a number of people close to this to indicate to me that it is not just live, but it is going quite well... a key here though remains (Vince) McMahon's real willingness to sell," Faber added.
