Default WWE to buy TNA?

from pwtorch.com

Quote:
During WWE's annual shareholders meeting on Friday, WWE CEO Vince McMahon briefly addressed a question on whether he'll consider buying out TNA.

"I don't know that they're for sale," McMahon said in a non-committal fashion. After a long pause as the shareholder asking the question pressed McMahon to give an answer, McMahon added, "Maybe."

The exchange at the end of the conference call was as follows:

Shareholder: When are you going to buy that three-letter company that's based in Nashville, Tenn., because they have the wrong people in charge of that company. Please save the business from Dixie Carter. (McMahon lightly laughs) Stephanie McMahon has more brains than Dixie Carter. (McMahon: Ooh.) I think if you buy it now, there's a shot at fixing that company up because I know you'll put the right people in charge of that company.

McMahon: I'm (long pause) - I don't know that they're for sale.

Shareholder: They're not for sale now, but I'm sure if you offered them something - I don't know, it's a 50/50 shot.

McMahon: Well - (deep groan) Maybe.

The exchange was removed from discussion earlier in the conference about WWE looking to acquire entertainment properties that fit their business model as part of the "New WWE" initiative, which TNA would fit into.

WWE said their goal is to find related content companies and "literally put them through the WWE system to create new revenue (for WWE)." WWE said the long-term goal is to acquire companies related to their content to grow the core business, which is creating content.

As much as I dislike TNA's product, WWE buying out TNA would be bad for the wrestling business, wrestling fans and the actual talent.
So yeah, rooting for TNA to keep doing good and not get bought.

What the hell? Why should Vince buy this promotion and then rebuild it? You can f'n use the WCW or ECW, if he wants to create artifical competition to his own brand. At least they had history. OWN history.

He might as well just buy it out and rebrand it as WCW 2001, since that's what is basically is.

As stupid as the TNA product is, it entertains me more than the WWE product. I don’t want WWE to buy my favorite comedy show.
