    Looks like we're going to have an AEW/Impact crossover, could be pretty interesting! Last weeks Dynamite was one hell of show.

    WWE Network is being shuddered, all content is moving to Peacock. While this may end up being a good thing for fans in the end, it probably isn't a great sign for the WWE. They cannibalized their pay-per-view revenues to start the streaming service, and part of the justification was to get people onto the platform with an eye towards expanding their media empire in the future. By driving subscriber growth they would see direct revenue enhancements to their bottom line (of course the reverse is true as well). It seems they've made the calculation they are better off with a licensing deal where they get a flat rate that is likely discounted compared to what they could have potentially received. That's all my speculation of course as the terms weren't disclosed immediately.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Well it turns out they sold the licensing for Raw to NBC/Universal (USA) for $1 billion. They sold Smackdown to Fox for $1 billion. And the Peacock deal is also $1 billion. So they just had three deals which will go until 2025 for a total of $3 billion. Not bad for a 'rasslin company.

    Not to keep replying to my own comments here, but I found this interesting. Apparently WWE Network had 1.6 million paid subscribers in the 3rd quarter of 2020. Assuming everyone is paying the full amount (I don't know if there are discounts, but maybe they've offered them), that would be 9.99 X 1,600,000 subscribers per month, which is almost 16 million dollars. Over a year it's a little over 191 million. Over 5 years it's almost 960 million. That doesn't make it look as good of a deal in my opinion as they basically bought 40 million dollars from the future and sold any potential upside to the subscriber base. Depending on advertising revenue on the channel (I don't watch it, but I would assume they sell add content and other sponsorships on there), they should easily get more than that amount over 5 years. I would assume Peacock will now get the rights to sell advertising on their content instead (or at least in addition to, which means cutting into any advertising revenue WWE had sole ownership of previously).

    I guess if you need revenue certainty it makes sense (and given the climate and their business of doing live events, that makes perfect sense), but as a business decision they are definitely sacrificing some potential future $$ growth for that revenue certainty now. Their stock price is down a bit today on this news which makes sense.

    Not sure why securing huge money deals on their two shows is a bad thing.

    Not sure if any of you have watched the Kayfabe Commentaries on YT, but I'd highly recommend them. The Kevin Nash Shoot Interviews are fucking great.

    Theres some good ones with Scott Hall, Bret, Cornette, etc etc.
