I would be interested to know how much WWE was making in overall profits in comparison to ten years ago. All figures can be spun into a positive, and WWE are masters at that, but the bottom line is always profit.

Roughly what I would have expected, significantly increased revenue but less overall profitability. Attendances are still good but I believe their last TV deal on USA was on reduced terms and as it stands the Network is not matching the profits they made from standard PPV. DVD/Blu-Rays, etc.

Have to imagine the £9.99 will eventually be bumped up. I'd guess some kind of tiered system, think they've already sent out customer surveys based on that idea.

Rosey, brother of Roman Reigns has passed away

47. His 3 minute warning partner was Jamal/Umaga, who died a few years back.

He had become huge sadly :-(

Saw the Show and Strowman segment - I think Strowman should be the one to beat Lesnar. He is great.

Said this for a while now, Strowman is an absolute beast and should be given the mega push they're giving to Reigns. And Lesnar absolutely needs to toppled and properly. He's getting $12m (50% more than the next top earner - Cena) per year for a handful of appearances and he doesn't even actually wrestle anymore (suplexs, few punches to the head, few F5's and 123). Let the build for Brain continue all year and pay it off at WM next year. Would be the biggest main event in years if they do it right.
