Vince McMahon praised WWE management during today’s earning call, “Like every other form of entertainment or sport, we’re coming out of COVID. At first, we were in survival mode but we found new life. Once we felt secure, we then saw this as an opportunity to rethink the way we do business and open what I call a WWE treasure chest. The only way you can do that is to have the best management team in WWE history.
We have that team. A team that’s innovative, a team that drives revenue and has reorganized our company in a more efficient way to take advantage of new revenue streams, new online platforms, new consumer products, new content creation, and new opportunities to expand our media rights portfolio on a global basis. I’m always excited about our business and I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited than I am now.” Stephanie McMahon is ‘bringing back’ a fired WWE star.
