“The Roman Reigns push has killed my enthusiasm for WWE.”

“Revenues increased 31% to $281.6 million, which was the highest quarterly revenue in WWE history.” - WWE Q2 Earnings Press Release.

“I can’t believe they turned Braun Strowman heel just to put Roman Reigns over.”

“Operating income nearly doubled to $21.2 million from $10.7 million in the prior year quarter.”

“Charlotte Flair is the new Roman Reigns.”

“WWE completed agreements with USA Network and Fox Sports, effective October 1, 2019, which increase the average annual value (AAV) of WWE’s U.S. distribution to 3.6 times that of the prior deal with NBCU.”

“Shocking that WWE would ruin Daniel Bryan Vs. The Miz.”

“WWE Network average paid subscribers increased 10% to 1.80 million paid subscribers, consistent with the Company’s guidance.”

“Shocking that WWE would ruin Asuka.”

“Digital engagement continued to grow through the first six months of 2018 with video views up 58% to 14.4 billion and hours consumed up 71% to 509 million across digital and social media platforms.”

These discrepancies are irreconcilable…under the old paradigm.
