Dana White seems confident in that the new merger between the UFC and WWE under Endeavor it will make both companies happy.
In a new interview with Associated Press the UFC president spoke about his hopes for the new deal, which was finalized and announced earlier this week. White, who was part of the UFC buyout for the first time in 2001 and helped make it one of the largest sports companies in the world said he believes the merger will help both promotions win new fans.
“So you have the power of the WWE fanbase, you have the power of the UFC fanbase, and you have my power of the…viral ability and whatever that fanbase is for ‘Power Slap. ‘”. and we can reach all these people in many different ways,” White said.
“There are many more resources now. WWE has many more resources. Now you are just a phone call away. All we have to do is pick up the phone and say, ‘Hey, how did this happen? … or how did you do it? do this?’ They all work together to make sure everyone wins. We’ve been together on the same weekend many times, you know? And you walk out of a UFC event and you have ‘Monday Night Raw’. But who knows, you know? These are all things that could be resolved on the business side.”
Many pro wrestling fans are wondering how the deal will affect on-screen content, including whether it can introduce UFC fighters or different types of matches and rules in WWE. But White said he doesn’t see much potential for a crossover.
“The difference between the UFC and WWE is…it’s well known that (WWE is) scripted,” he said. “When you look at the UFC, this is as real as it gets.”
