• “Good business decision” – Hall Of Famer On Recent WWE Releases
During a new episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Eric Bischoff talked about the recent WWE releases, including top stars like Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe & Mickie James.
Here’s what Bischoff said:
“In many respects, it’s kind of exciting to see the shuffleboard being shuffled right in front of your eyes. The more I think about it, the more I’m convinced the WWE is not for sale. I’m not suggesting that it’ll never happen, nobody knows for sure, I certainly don’t have a crystal ball and not privy to any inside information.
But I’m more and more convinced that what WWE is doing, Nick Khan probably is the catalyst for a lot of this, is making good business decisions.
The stock went down and I thought man, it is going to be really hard for this company to get back to where they were but I think WWE’s stock today is hovering around $56-58 a share.
If I’m WWE, if I’m on the board or the chairman or just a shareholder, I’m sitting here wondering what they’re going to do to get that stock price back up.
That should be everybody’s goal, I’m sure it is.
This is just me looking from a million miles away, if I’m involved in some of the decisions in trying to get that stock price up, I’m looking at the talent on my roster which is a significant part of the expenses in WWE.”
