Billy Corgan, the head of NWA spoke about Tony Khan potentially buying WWE. Corgan took over NWA from Bruce Tharpe not long after his deal with Impact Wrestling fell through. Some say his run has revitalized the NWA, others say it’s ruined it.
This is what Billy Corgan said, “Stranger things have happened, color me wrong. It’s the world of professional wrestling and we are talking about billions of dollars here, and not a lot of people on the planet have billions of dollars to spend plus want to be in professional wrestling. Anything is possible of course, but that’s the one where I sort of raised an eyebrow and thought, ‘No, that’s not happening.’”

It’s hard but not impossible as no one really expected the lead singer of Smashing Pumpkins to get into wrestling either. Who knows what the future might hold.
Billy Corgan did heap praise on Tony Khan however. “The things that have shifted in the last five years for that audience, and I am using that term loosely, is they see where WWE isn’t the only kid on the block anymore. Tony coming in and doing what he has done with AEW … he’s at has loosened up the market when they think, okay now there’s room for other people to come in. 20 years ago no one would have imagined that.”
What do you think? Tony Khan to buy WWE? Or is Billy Corgan right after all?
