There have reportedly been talks between ESPN and WWE to bring WWE content to ESPN+, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
WWE is reportedly pushing for a similar deal to that of UFC, in which they would sell the rights to their pay-per-view events to a new streaming service that would pay more than WWE they would make selling them through the WWE Network.
WWE is also hoping an ESPN+ deal could bring more mainstream exposure to the brand and its biggest Superstars. Dave Meltzer notes that there is no indication of how far along talks are and nothing has been agreed on as of this week.
