- Since WWE went public in 1999, there has always been talk of them going back to private. There’s been a lot of talk online about WWE going private after the recent stock troubles. This has been brought up within WWE in the past and there was a negative reaction to the idea. There is a feeling going around that being a public company makes them more respectable, makes them more legitimate and gives pro wrestling a better mainstream look.
I don’t think they will or should. It would be a step back rather than a step forward and a major loss of cash. Talk is talk, but do not expect anything to happen coming out of this report from FWonline.com
