There was a meeting between WWE officials and Impact Wrestling’s Ed Nordolm and Scott D’Amore at WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut last week. Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com reports that it was a general meeting and did not pertain to a sale of the Impact Wrestling company or its tape library to WWE. Johnson wrote that an Impact source stressed that neither the company nor the library are for sale. It was also noted that Vince McMahon did not sit in on the meeting with the WWE team.
Powell’s POV: Nearly everything is for sale for the right price. The meeting may not have been related to a potential sale as the report indicates and Anthem may not be actively shopping Impact or its library, but I have no doubt that if WWE officials were to throw out the right dollar amount then the folks at Anthem would have a hard time passing. That said, Johnson described it as a general discussion between the two companies that have done some business together with WWE paying to license some Impact Wrestling footage.
