Below are a few more highlights from the conference call with WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon Thursday morning:
– McMahon said that they are looking to get the WWE.com based NXT and Superstars on the air “by the end of the year”. Both shows previously had network homes on SyFy and WGN America, respectively, but were dropped due to low ratings.
– McMahon noted that there are currently plans for WWE to do an arena-based pre-show to WWE Monday Night RAW. No further details were given, and it is unknown if it will air on USA or the WWE cable network once it is released.
– Speaking of the WWE cable network, McMahon noted that they are projected to launch the project by beginning to the middle of 2013. He noted that the WWE has meetings with potential distributors in the coming weeks.
