Former WWE employee and Superstar Dutch Mantell (Zeb Colter) has taken to Twitter to note that he's heard a rumor that a deal is being negotiated to sell WWE and the WWE Network to ESPN and FOX.
"HUGE NEWS: Any truth to this. Overheard directly out of @WWE Stamford is that a deal is being negotiated to sell WWE & the network to @ESPN and @FOX by as early as Mid May. @mattkoonmusic"
It should be noted rumors of this nature have surfaced before and none have materialized. WWE is always in the market to work with major broadcasters, with reports surfacing earlier this year that WWE had plans to sell their pay-per-view rights.
