  1. I just don’t get this. WWE programming & content in general (aside from NXT) is the worst it’s been in 2 decades yet they continue to make record profits. Do they really profit THAT much from being a publicly traded company to make up for lack of public interest in their on-air product? Apparently they do. smh
