A Behind the Curtains Report on WWE

Matthew HesterSenior Writer IAugust 22, 2009

Hello everyone. As always, I would like to thank all of you for spending some time with me today.

Today I would like to spend some time by dropping some news about the current goings-on with the WWE. There are a lot of things that aren’t mentioned on here that I thought some people might find interesting.


From the ring to politics

It might interest some on here to find out that Linda McMahon is considering a serious run at the U.S. Senate.  While this isn’t anything official, if it were to happen, Vince would take over full duties with the WWE.

I’m not sure how well it would work out for Linda with her last name being McMahon. I do wish her the best of luck though. She is definitely going to need it in the world of politics.


Profits on the rise

"The WWE today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30,
2009. Revenues totaled $138.8 million as compared to $129.7 million in the prior year

"Operating income was $28.1 million as compared to $12.0 million in the prior
year quarter. Net income was $19.9 million, or $0.27 per share, as compared to $7.0
million, or $0.10 per share, in the prior year quarter."

It looks like the WWE is making some progress. It may only be a small jump, but its better than falling behind. I don’t know though if this report takes into the account of payroll and operating costs. If it doesn’t, then those are shaded numbers.


Giving back to the community

If you can say one positive thing about the WWE, it would be that they are always giving.  They do countless charity work for surrounding communities. They also are very generous with supporting our troops in need.

The WWE still continue to give tickets away to veterans and current members in the military. While to some that may not seem like much, but to the troops it is not only a nice break from their hectic lives, it is also a good morale booster for them too.

The WWE also continues to give to its local communities. I find it odd how this never makes the news. Tiffany joined Brandon Diciccio in effort to help raise money for the less fortunate. In total they have raised $5,000 to help their cause.

ECW GM Tiffany also helped in a soup kitchen and made food for the homeless. It was a rewarding experience for both parties.

“Brandon is such an amazing kid. I had heard all that he had accomplished, and I was so impressed by him,” said Tiffany. His Humility and Humanitarianism makes him one of, if not the, most amazing kids I ever met.”

It is also worth noting that John Cena has taken time from his busy day to donate time for a family of a lost firefighter.

He will be appearing at a car show with his brother and doing a meet and greet in order to raise many for the fallen firefighters family.

I would like to thank all of you for spending some time with me today.

As always, have a safe and blessed day.
