– To get an idea of where WWE’s revenue streams come from, here’s a breakdown by region:

* 74.4% from North America in April-June 2012, up from 72.2% in April-June 2011.

* 17.1% from Europe, the Middle East and Africa in April-June 2012. Down from 18.2% in April-June 2011.

* 5.9% from Asia Pacific in April-June 2012. Up from 5.8% in April-June 2011.

* 2.6% from Latin America in April-June 2012, down from 3.7% in April-June 2011.

– WWE is currently spending around $820,000 per TV taping. This is up from the $735,000 per taping they were spending the same time last year.

– WWE officials are said to be on the fence about SmackDown Superstar Antonio Cesaro, formerly known as Claudio Castagnoli on the independents. He’s considered by some to be a “now or never” talent and the hope is that he will have a breakout moment here soon.

    Wellsey you are not too bright. The purpose of “them stats” wasn’t to show an increase or decrease in total revenue. 100% will always be 100%. It was to show how that revenue is divided. These kinds of studies are usually done to show potential for growth and where to concentrate marketing efforts. It’s not rocket science.

    WHF why is every article about the rock always everytime!!!! just let him go away and ‘act’ in sub-par movies

    @Jimbo Agreed he and Chris Hero have no business in WWE. Simply because WWE Creative will make them Look stupid, and because they aren’t a Tag Team.

  • Jimbo

    He seems awfully generic and bland. U mad, indie fanboys?

  • Eve’s left nipple

    He needs a new finisher to make his finish look more impactful, That Gotch neutralizer looks weak.

  • Fred

    Let him do the his UFO signature to show his strength would help the gimmick, and get rid of the rugby gear.

  • Tyson Kidd is better than everyone of you

    we want tyson kidd

  • Wellsy

    Them stats are pretty misleading. Just because a percentage has gone up, doesn’t mean the revenue has gone up.
    This report would have been a lot more useful had they posted what 100% was actually worth this year and last year. 2% of something is better than 100% of nothing.

    And if Kings of Wrestling reunite on WWE TV, shit just got serious.

    @Sam Peters: You mean Chris Hero ? He’s already in NXT with the name Kassius Ohno.

  • Sam Peters

    maybe they should leave him off for a while, bring his tag partner from ROH up to the main roster and have them two go for the tag titles
