Update: IGN is now reporting that Take Two will be acquiring the WWE license.


THQ no longer exists as a company, and we've even learned exactly how much each of its properties and developers cost. One thing we don't know, however, is exactly what will become of the lucrative WWE license.

Wrestling blog Cageside Seats reported last month that THQ owes Vince McMahon's company $45 million dollars, and that the eccentric WWE chairman is "furious" about the situation (weird...he's usually so level-headed).

Rumors have been swirling today about Electronic Arts purchasing the wrestling license, but it's far from confirmed. We'll update you as soon as official word comes out.
