WME is born

WMA and Endeavor approve their merger today. Attention is focused on layoffs and resignations at the new WME, and the upcoming battle for agency world domination with CAA. I wonder though what this means for ICM, UTA & Paradigm. Where do they fit in this new two big dog world? Are more mergers likely in the future? Or perhaps CAA and WME will be considered two big by certain key talent, which will cause an unexpected boon? With a shift such as this merger, the angles that could be played are countless, and I'm intrigued to see how things fall out. I'm hoping for good things though because as we saw with the banks, two much power in two few hands is a dangerous thing.
