Interesting Stat on How Much Money WWE Is Losing This Year, What They Originally Expected



- This is a scary stat for WWE. They will lose more money in 2014 than any other wrestling company in history, in a calendar year, besides WCW in 2000. WWE is expecting to lose between $45 million and $52 million in 2014. WCW lost $62 million in 2000.

WWE previously expected that they would lose $23 million to $26 million in the first 6 months of this year, but then with the Network and the new TV deal kicking in during October, they expected to break even in quarter three and then make substantial profits in quarter four, ending the year at close to breaking even.

It’s a big story and a major loss for WWE but they aren’t going out of business. There’s been a lot of speculation and rumors among fans online lately.

    it’ll take more then 1 bad year for WWE to worry. when was the last time they saw losses during a whole year, anyway?

  2. Rusty Shackleford says:

    To be fair, $62 million in 2000 is definitely further apart than just the $10-17 million estimated difference between that and 2014 WWE losses thanks to inflation. Still not good though.
