Top WWE officials including Vince McMahon and more recently held a media conference call to discuss the company’s financial performance in 2018.
During the call, they discussed how WWE has seen a record revenue for the 5th year in a row and the officials also touted their shows in Saudi Arabia and Australia.
When a caller asked about the launch of a “new wrestling organization” WWE Co-President George Barrios responded by saying that it’s too early to say anything:
“Yeah, too early to tell. We wouldn’t talk about specifics of that, from our perspective, we think we are the premier global organization with the greatest wrestlers in the world, one of the greatest platforms. We have a lot of confidence in our ability to manage that.”
While it’s too early to say what kind of effect AEW will have on WWE’s business, with signings like Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega, it’s surely a product worth keeping an eye on.
