The bankruptcy of THQ, the videogame licensee of WWE, won't result in a quick and easy sale to Clearlake Capitol Group LLC.

An article by Bloomberg News noted that the judge overseeing the case would not grant the sale, noting that ten potential buyers have contacted the court about their interest if there was time to peruse the books, including Warner Bros. Entertainment.

Another hearing on the matter is set for this Monday.
