McMahon appeared on CNBC Monday alongside Endeavor’s CEO Ari Emanuel to further discuss the merger that will be controlled by Endeavor.
McMahon said, “It’s a great day. Things have to evolve. Family businesses have to evolve for all the right reasons,” referencing the WWE being founded by his father.
The announcement of the merger stated, “Together, UFC and WWE will have global reach, impressive scale and omnichannel distribution. On a combined 2022 fiscal year-end basis, UFC and WWE achieved revenue of $2.4 billion and a 10 percent annual revenue growth rate since 2019.”
“This is a rare opportunity to create a global live sports and entertainment pureplay built for where the industry is headed,” Emanuel said.
McMahon added, “Given the incredible work that Ari [Emanuel] and Endeavor have done to grow the UFC brand — nearly doubling its revenue over the past seven years — and the immense success we’ve already had in partnering with their team on a number of ventures, I believe that this is without a doubt the best outcome for our shareholders and other stakeholders.”
