Is WWE in trouble? The recent lawsuit against UFC could have implications for the wrestling giant. Find out how the acquisition of WWE by Endeavor and the presence of AEW may impact the future of professional wrestling.
In a shocking turn of events, it was announced that WWE and UFC are now both owned by Endeavor, raising questions about the future of the top wrestling organization. The recent lawsuit against Dana White’s mixed martial arts promotion has the potential to spell big trouble for WWE.
Just after WrestleMania 39, Vince McMahon made headlines when he revealed that Endeavor had acquired his wrestling promotion. This news came as a surprise to many, as WWE has long been synonymous with the McMahon family. However, the acquisition raised curiosity about how UFC and WWE would be impacted under the same ownership.
Unfortunately for WWE, the lawsuit against UFC could have far-reaching implications. The lawsuit claims that UFC is an illegal monopoly and has suppressed competition from other MMA promotions. If the case goes against UFC, it could open the door for a class-action lawsuit involving 1,200 fighters.
With both UFC and WWE now owned by Endeavor, the similarities in their business practices could lead to trouble for the wrestling giant. If UFC loses the case, it is possible that a second lawsuit could be filed against WWE. The potential consequences for WWE could be significant.
However, there may be a glimmer of hope for WWE in the form of AEW (All Elite Wrestling). AEW has emerged as a major competitor to WWE in the wrestling industry. Ironically, the presence of AEW may actually protect WWE from the fallout of the UFC lawsuit.
If UFC is found guilty, professional wrestlers may see an opportunity to target WWE. However, with AEW providing a viable alternative, WWE may be shielded from the worst of the consequences. This unexpected turn of events could ultimately save WWE from a potential lawsuit.
In conclusion, the acquisition of WWE by Endeavor has raised questions about the future of the wrestling giant. The lawsuit against UFC, if successful, could have implications for WWE. However, the presence of AEW may offer some protection to WWE in the face of potential legal trouble. Only time will tell how this legal battle will unfold and what it means for the world of professional wrestling.
