- UFC President Dana White says the WWE Network devalues WWE’s product and the UFC won’t be following suit.
According to FOX Sports, Dana discussed the WWE Network at a luncheon this week:
“It’s ridiculous. I hate to sound like I’m attacking the WWE or (I) devalue what they did because Vince McMahon, say whatever you want — and he’s always smashing us and talking s—t about us, but I will tell you this, I was watching WWE I was a little kid and Vince was the commentator in WWE — this guy has been kicking ass, breaking rules and doing things that people said he couldn’t do over and over and over again. Now I’m older I don’t get the whole thing, it doesn’t work for me, but what he’s able to do, the ratings he’s able to pull and the things he’s done … And when I look at his model and he’s basically taking everything in and devalued it. Saying everything we do is worth $10. That doesn’t make sense to me,” White said during a media luncheon on Monday.”
“If he pulls in 2 million subscribers, he’s crushing it. So it’s a risky move, it’s a crazy move, but Vince has been doing risky, crazy s—t since the beginning of time. If anybody can do it, maybe Vince can do it.”
