According to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund has emerged as a potential bidder for the WWE.

Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund reportedly controls $620 billion in assets.

We've already seen Saudi Arabia shake up the sports world with LIV Golf. Acquiring the WWE would be quite the statement.

“In the same way they did LIV, there’s an unlimited faucet of dollars there,” LightShed Partners analyst Brandon Ross told Front Office Sports.

“The Saudis are already a decent part of the profitability of the company just on those two [Saudi-based WWE] events alone. They’re trying to be relevant in the entertainment world.”

The WWE has preexisting history with Saudi Arabia. Crown Jewel, WWE Live, and the Greatest Royal Rumble were all held there.

Of course, there's no guarantee the WWE will go up for sale. If it does, however, Saudi Arabia's PIF will be firmly in the mix.
