    Let’s not forget they are going to be adding two more shows, and still trying to get USA tv for NXT and possibly Superstars

    Some of that money clearly has to be going to the simple fees it takes to run a business.

    I don’t expect some people on here to be able to truly grasp this but right now WWE superstars who have financial gripes are clearly making the correct decision of not lobbying for change when your company is in the middle of a huge change to the weekly way they handle their business.
