• Vince McMahon Comments On WWE Crossing $1 Billion In Revenue For The 1st Time Ever
As we noted earlier, WWE announced $1.095 billion in revenue for 2021 in their earnings call.
While addressing this achievement, WWE CEO Vince McMahon talked about WWE’s new strategy for their premium live events – shifting them from arenas to stadiums.
Below is what Vince said:
“In 2021, we reached a significant milestone of over $1 billion in revenue, for the first time in the Company’s history.
We ended the year with strong performance across each of our business lines that reflected the engagement of a wider audience with distribution on new digital platforms, including Peacock, and the return of fans at our live events.
We expect the execution of key initiatives in the coming year, such as the licensing of network content in international markets, monetization of new original series, and the continued shift to a stadium strategy for WWE’s premium live events, will further expand the reach of our brands and enhance the value of our content.”
