David Bauder of the Associated Press has an interview up with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. Here are some of the highlights.
On moving the WWE product to TV-PG and being family friendly:
“We just followed our audience and tried to listen to them. It’s a more sophisticated product. It’s just the right move business-wise, but more specifically the right move in terms of reaching our audience.”
On the popularity of MMA and competing with UFC:
“You really can’t compete with that. Why not deliver a more sophisticated product and not go to those extremes? If the audience wants those extremes, they know where to go and how to get it.”
