Jeremy- are you taking pre or post covid? I just assumed covid was fully responsible because ratings were solid as was attendance. But was it not doing well even before covid?
No, it was just starting to drop numbers wise right before Covid hit. The trends were a little worrying but with anything you have to give it some time and see if it bounces back. The NFL can survive poor attendance because of their tv deal. The xfl wasn’t there yet. But having 12 owners lose a couple million is easier to live with than one guy losing $40m.
What sucked was the only thing to do at that point was to give it some time and increase the sample size and then Covid hit and took that away and Vince took his chance to dump it real fast. Pulled the trigger too early I think but he didn’t want to pay people in a shut down.
We can look at how he’s handled wwe and get a good feeling it’s him to blame. Cutting a huge chunk of employees and making $40m in profit last quarter.
