WWE cutting back on house shows

July 19, 2022 | News | No Comments

A report via The Wrestling Observer Newsletter:
“There looks to be a major change in the house show business. With the shows having started to lose money last quarter, plus with them drawing less, the attendance decline has hurt the stock price and given the perception that the brand’s popularity is declining, they are cutting way back. Instead of two brands doing four shows per week as has been the case for years, house shows have become more rare.”Click Here: i soccer kit

Wall Street continues to pound on WWE stocks

July 17, 2022 | News | No Comments

Investors continued to lay the smackdown on WWE stocks as the company lost a further 4.5% of its price in the first couple hours of trading today. Since late last week, WWE shed a whopping 30% of its value in a bloodbath that shows no signs of stopping.
Things will most likely get even worse later on in the week as WWE presents its Q4 and 2019 full year results. They already lowered the outlook and Vince McMahon will get to face investors during the conference call and this time he won’t have his once-trusted co-Presidents with him.
George Barrios and Michelle Wilson, two of the most powerful people in the WWE, were fired last week by the Board of Directors. The news sent the stock down 24% by the end of the week.Click Here: all stars nrl rugby jersey

Recently on his podcast, 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff discussed Jon Moxley’s run in the company.
“Not yet,” Bischoff said. “I gotta be honest, I like his character, I like his work, I like the fact that he is kind of this enigma in a way. Theres a lot of things I like about him, but the top guy? If I’m being honest, no I don’t.”
Bischoff noted that Moxley is missing the range to get to the next level, where he believes Chris Jericho sits.
“He’s two dimensional and he needs to find that third dimension to get him to a Chris Jericho type level,” Bischoff said. “There’s nothing wrong with his work, nothing at all wrong with his character other than I’m not seeing a lot of depth to it. There’s a sameness to it, there’s not enough range to it. I think that’s true across the boards for a lot of characters, not just Jon Moxley.
“You go back and look at Chris Jericho’s career and he’s been able to successfully reinvent himself so many different times and so many different ways because he has that range and that third dimension that a lot of people have really never developed. A lot of top guys don’t have it. If any talent, not just Jon Moxley, wants to reach that level they have got to have that range that allows them to position elements of their character that make them feel more interesting.”
Moxley will face AEW World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho for the title at AEW Revolution on February 29th.Click Here: wallabies rugby jersey
