WWE CFO Provides Update on the WWE Network, Talks Creating New Top Superstars

– WWE CFO George Barrios spoke at the annual ROTH OC Growth Stock Conference in California earlier this week.

Barrior spoke about the WWE Network and said that the company is in intense negotiations with cable companies. Barrios talked about WWE being close to having a plan to distribute the content and how they feel this is still the best option to monetize more of their content.

WWE plans to spend $35-$45 million more on the WWE Network in 2012.

Barrios was asked why WWE hasn’t made new big Superstars to replace the ones who have recently left and the ones who will be leaving soon like Triple H and The Undertaker. Barrios talked about how WWE is going through turning over their roster after several injuries and retirements. He admitted that WWE does not know who the next big Superstar is right now.

    Ziggler, Barrett, and Rhodes should be the next big three heels and Kofi and Dibiase should be the next big faces.

    WWE hasnt made any new Top Superstars since Jim Ross stepped down as Head of Talent relations! Just a FACT!

  • Austin

    Anybody can be a MEGASTAR if you use them correctly.

  • b c Mitchell

    Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, Wade Barrett, Miz, Kofi, Bryan, even Truth and Punk. The future of WWE seems pretty good to me. Problem is instead of showcasing these guys at Wrestlemania they keep going to the past using Taker, HHH, HBK, and Rock. It seems pretty counter productive

  • Jeff

    dolph ziggler is the next big superstar imo

  • josh

    Brodus Clay is the next big star. I want more gimmick stars
