WWE recently held one of their regular earnings calls with shareholders. Vince McMahon discussed a number of topics during the call, including the company’s two recent hires; President and Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan and Chief Financial Officer Kristina Salen.
Vince McMahon would tout the new found feel and vibrancy of the company as we head into the final two months of 2020.
“I think that I’ve never felt as confident as I currently do in terms of this, of our new management. It’s really extraordinary what this has done for the entire business and other executives and much further below. There’s a new spirit, a new vibrance. And I don’t know if you find this anywhere, there’s a view of optimism, not just for optimism stake, but when you look at where we’re going to go in the future and use the resources that we have as well as other things like, this is a fun, exciting place to be. And of course, that new management team is, as you mentioned, Nick Khan, who is the President and, of course, CRO, Kristina Salen, new CFO, was mentioned and, of course, other individuals that are here, that have been here before, they now feel the same way. The interaction is reinvigorating. It really is.”
WWE has seen a boost in terms of ratings with the introduction of WWE Thunderdome. The numbers are still trending downwards on a year to year basis, but the drop has somewhat steadied since the initial ’empty arena’ shows back in March/April.
