That's a giant plug in the market. What accounted for that one? People realizing its almost a complete young male soap opera at this point.

 

New television contract. Doubt the demographic has offered a good ROI for advertisers in the last few years.

This is 2014. It's been well known that professional wrestling has been a work since 1983. I wasn't even born yet when McMahon went on record and announced that it was entertainment, and not a real athletic competition.

It is a new TV contract, but it is more than that too. They are going away from a PPV model to their own network model, but they don't have enough subscribers so right now there is a lot less money in the deal. The numbers were released today and the stock got hammered.

Maybe they can sue the World Wildlife Fund. After all this is their fault. If they had left the WWF alone and let them go public on the stock exchange as WWF, and continue to do so, they would be unstoppable now.....As soon as they changed to WWE I stopped watching. What wimps would let a measly organization like the World Wildlife Fund make them change their name?

 

WWE just doesn't sound right. Andre the Giant is still rolling in his grave over the name change.......

The lawsuit was actually filed in 1978, and wasn't settled until 2002! Believe me The World Wrestling Federation did fight to keep the acronym WWF. They fought head to head with the World Wildlife Fund for 24 years before finally losing the battle, and being legally forced to come up with something other than WWF.
