NEW YORK, May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Law Office of James C.

On May 15, 2014, WWE updated its business outlook by disclosing that if it achieves one million subscribers for its WWE television network by the end of this year, it would have operating losses of between $35 million and $45 million. Significantly, the company also disclosed that the WWE Network would need at least a range of 1.3 million to 1.4 million subscribers "to offset the complete cannibalization of the Company's Pay-Per-View and" video-on-demand businesses. However, as recently as January 16, 2014, WWE's CFO represented that at 1 million subscribers "we break even" for 2014 assuming the pay-per-view business goes away.
