Uh do you know what's on AMC? They won't allow childish watered down crap on their network especially on that timeslot. Same with Spike.

AMC also shows the mother of all horror movie fests each October with gore intact and just tits and fucks censored out. They would embrace a TV 14 WWE

I would never rule anything out.

Stranger things have happened than someone selling their life's work, towards the final decades of their life.

I think it would be a good idea, but WWE is way too big for AMC and no way in hell is Vince ever selling the company.

WWE will never be sold as long as Vince is alive. However, when he passes I wouldn't be that surprised if Steph sells up.

Re: Company Is Interested In Buying WWE

I love AMC. I'm a huge Breaking Bad fan, but I don't see how people can think this would be good for the long term. People claim the WWE doesn't know what it's doing right now (which is vastly hyperbole). It's not that WWE doesn't know what it's doing, it's that the direction they've been going creatively hasn't been in sync with what a lot of fans want. It's still done a lot of good as far as wrestling wise is concerned. They can't grab every talent the IWC wants them to, but it seems like for every Mojo Rawley they sign they also sign a Sami Zayn. Look at the strides NXT has had in the last year. While WWE's booking may be questionable at times they are still producing a great in ring product at a high rate. This is because even with all the "sports entertainment" they try to sell it as it's still a wrestling company at heart. What people always fail to realize about WCW's fall was all the shenanigans were mainly because it was owned by Turner, who basically stood back and let them do whatever the fuck they wanted. Not saying AMC would be that foolish, but the true demise was the merger. If AMC decided WWE wasn't doing what they wanted the company to do numbers wise or that WWE is no longer the direction they wanted to go into than WWE could be in a worse position than it is now. What WWE has right now that they'd lose by being bout by the channel that will air it is independence. With USA basically only airing the show it has a lot more free reign than it would have under AMC. Could AMC help business wise? Maybe, but that's not any given considering McMahon has been doing great on the business end. I can't expect HHH and Stephanie to do what he has done with he's done, so maybe AMC can help there. But I really don't expect whoever AMC places (if anybody) to know wrestling better than Vince or HHH and I think we'd see even more questionable moves made in booking with a TV channel running it. Before Eric Biscoff took over WCW look who WCW's parent company had in charge, Jim Herd. It's not like that worked out well. The more influence the action channel has the less power WWE has. It's been said USA has influenced the PG movement, and I can't imagine AMC sticking too that, but that doesn't mean we'd get another attitude era or even another boom period. I still would like to see what WWE would do if aired on AMC. Basically, Raw being aired on AMC could be great if it allows WWE to make the decisions to go more mature, but keep in mind even with AMC high acclaim it's still not really doing better than USA. USA is one of the top networks in the country. Anyway, if AMC can get the rights to air Raw that would be great, but AMC buying the whole company... that could be disastrous in the long term.

Re: Company Is Interested In Buying WWE

Very interesting. Maybe those hilariously awesome ideas of Kofi and Del Rio getting African and Mexican drug dealer gimmicks can finally come to pass.

Good sources tell me cable group AMC Networks has been sniffing around World Wrestling Entertainment Inc, the US-listed company behind those ridiculous wrestling programmes, such as WWF, Raw and Smackdown.
Good job of the author to not only sound like a pretentious cocksmoker, but also be retarded enough to think the company is still called the WWF and name one of the company's shows as simply "WWF".
