Report: Triple H & Stephanie McMahon Didn't Oppose WWE Sale

It was previously thought that Stephanie and Triple H opposed a WWE sale

A new report has seemingly debunked an earlier one that suggested Stephanie McMahon and Paul 'Triple H' Levesque were opposed to the sale of WWE. 

Speaking during a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the duo are neither opposed to a potential sale, nor championing it either.

"One of them [the various stories about a WWE sale] was they were opposed to a sale. From what I am told, Paul and Stephanie, they are not opposed to a sale, and they knew that at some those Vince's shares [he's the majority shareholder of B-class stock] were an albatross, and at some point, somebody had to get rid of those shares anyway or Vince would take over", Meltzer said. 

He added:

"So, they were not like saying we have to sell. It's Vince who pretty much made that call because of the timing, and maybe, again, he's farther along the Saudi deal, which is maybe where those rumors came from. And knew the timing and everything like that because he jumped in for the sale. Anyways, it's not like they are opposed to a sale. It's not like they champion the sale, either. They were, either way [about it]".

Stephanie resigned from WWE last week after her father was re-elected to the Board of Directors as Executive Chairman. Levesque is still WWE Head of Content, though recent reports claim that Vince is 'suggesting changes' to WWE creative.
