• Jim Cornette Comments On Cody Rhodes Telling Vince Russo To Stay Away From “ALL IN”
Cody Rhodes recently told Vince Russo to stay away from his “ALL IN” event. Jim Cornette had the following to say about this:
“He (Russo) knocks them all the time, so why would he want to, if he believes he has any credibility, why would he want to associate himself with that where then people would have to say ‘well, look. Russo knocks them’. Same thing I thought immediately. Russo knocks them, but he’s not above a payoff to come up here and be a part of the thing. That was my main consideration for not being involved, because I don’t want people to think that I’m a f***ing hypocrite. But he has no problem with that.
But then, to not know enough to take the booking and not realize that a bunch of the people on the show that are running the show because it’s the boys running the show, I believe we’ve mentioned that, that the boys wouldn’t want you on [the show] because… dealing with him is like picking up a turd from the clean end. There’s absolutely no way to do it where you can please the majority of the people involved in the situation, because nobody wants him around.”
The ABSOLUTE FACT that I am ready, willing and able to appear at ALL IN while others are already attempting to do EVERYTHING in their power to keep me from attending-tells you just about everything you need to know about ME & THEM.

• WWE CFO Reveals How Facebook Felt About The Performance Of WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge
Speaking at J.P. Morgan Global Technology, Media, and Communications Conference, WWE CFO George Barrios revealed how Facebook felt about the performance of WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge series on Facebook Watch.
Below is what Barrios said:
“You’re doing something for the first time ever, so it’s hard to have any expectations around it. I think that goes for Facebook [too]. If you ask them, because we did, what would make this successful for you guys because obviously that’s a real important thing for us. And I think they’re still determining, you know, what success is.
We know what the metric is, it’s time. So, it’s how many people are you reaching, and how much time are they spending. That’s easy. That’s what we measure and are kind of super intense about measuring time and making sure we have our arms around that.
So, having said that, we’ve took Facebook’s lead, and they seem to be really happy with how Mixed Match Challenge was, or how it performed, so in turn we are too. So we learned some things around the scheduling. We learned some things around the promotion, both within Facebook and externally, and we saw the viewership get impacted with certain things we’re trying. I think we’re in early days.”
