During a press event held by Netflix, chief content officer Bela Bajaria was asked if there were any concerns about Vince McMahon, following allegations made public against the WWE founder just days after the announcement of the deal between the two companies.
The executive was quick to confirm that McMahon, who resigned as TKO executive chairman following a lawsuit filed against him, was gone from the company.
In regards to the impact of WWE’s deal as it pertains to Netflix, Bajaria stated:
“The truth is we don’t know how much bigger it can get. I think we’re all really bullish on it, but we know that has an incredibly consistent audience for the last several decades. And so that’s really first and foremost where we’re starting at, and then we’ll see where we go from there.”
The deal brings RAW to the streaming platform in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Latin America beginning January 2025, as well as shows and Premium Live Events in other regions as previously reported.
