Notes on WWE Network, WWE PPVs, social media, and more
– WWE will continue to focus on talent development, content creation, innovative marketing strategies.
– WWE Network related costs: 8.2 million. Feel that content investments will yield significant returns.
– Barrios: PPV business declined 11% due to reduction in # of events. 3 PPV as opposed to 4. Comparable basis, 4% increase, due to HD buys.
– George Barrios: Doubled WWE Facebook/Twitter follower network to 130 million in Q4 2012
