During WWE’s shareholders meeting earlier this morning, a shareholder asked Vince McMahon about any interest in buying TNA Wrestling.
The shareholder said, “When are you going to buy that three letter company that’s based in Nashville, Tennessee because they have the wrong people in charge of that company.”
Vince responds, “Right”.
The shareholder continued, “And please save the business from Dixie Carter. (Vince laughs) Stephanie has more brains than Dixie Carter has.” Vince responded laughing, “I would hope.” Lots of laughter and chatter took place after this statement was made by the shareholder, including Vince laughing some more at his table. Stephanie McMahon and Triple H were shown sitting nearby laughing as well.
The shareholder continued, “I think if you buy it now, there is a shot at fixing that company because I know you would put the right people in charge to fix that company.” Vince, seeming to be at a loss for words, responded, “I don’t know that they are for sale.” The shareholder jumped in, “I’m sure if offer them something…I don’t know. It is a 50/50 shot. I mean they know you are loaded with money.” (crowd laughs) Vince continued, “Well…maybe.” (Vince smiles, crowd continues to laugh)
