George Barrios Compares UFC Audience to WWE Audience

As noted earlier, Chael Sonnen said no one on the WWE roster can count to eight, while discussing Vince McMahon challenging Dana White to a fight. WWE CFO George Barrios shed some light on how he feels about the UFC audience at the 25th Annual ROTH Conference. Barrios, who admitted he’s been to a UFC event, said:

“It’s a lot of guys, it’s a lot of cigars, and a lot of smoke,”

He contrasted that WWE’s audience is similar to Disney on Ice events with grandparents, parents and kids. Barrios touted WWE’s age distribution and diversity of the audience.

    Seeing as how WWE has real blood also, that statements doesn’t make much sense.. Have you ever wrestled? You ever been in a ring? I have and it doesn’t feel great.. UFC is extremely boring.. I can’t stand to watch 3 5 minute round of hugging.

  • and the WWE crowd makes the product lame….remember how amazing the RAW after Mania 28 was? It was made up of mostly adults…just saying

    How can you even compare the two? I mean UFC is real with real blood, and wwe is scripted. The only thing that’s the same is injuries
