PLAYERS: Vince McMahon
On Friday, WWE issued a statement after the stock market closed saying that they are lowering their financial outlook for this year. The press release stated that they expected OIBDA results to range from $40 million to $50 million and that the revision is due mostly to “several recent developments that caused an approximate 5% reduction in second half revenue expectations” as well as the company’s “high operating leverage.” The company’s original estimate was $56.9 million to $69.5 million. As many expected, the stock is taking a bit of a hit. Today, with the market up around 130 points, WWE stock is down 18 cents a share. Many are worried about the stock at this point, due to Vince McMahon stating the quarter would be up, due to a huge jump in the TV rights fees that the company is paid for RAW and SmackDown.

Who do you have? ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin definitely makes the cut. So does Vince Mcmahon. Probably the...
