- WWE CFO George Barrios talked company business at JP Morgan’s 41st annual Global Technology, Media and Telecom conference on Thursday. There wasn’t much new about the WWE Network but he noted that they are now looking to price it between $9.99 and $14.99 per month, a bit lower than previous estimates. Barrios also noted that the new WWE 2K14 video game will have a strong online gaming presence. A full transcript can be found here at SeekingAlpha.com.
- It was reported earlier this week that Big Japan Pro Wrestling announced Sami Callihan was removed from their next tour because he is signing with WWE. That’s not correct as other sources report Callihan was removed from the tour because he has a family member dealing with a severe health issue. Callihan did not want to be out of the country for 7-10 days while this family member is dealing with their issue. Callihan is still expected to sign with WWE but him leaving the BJPW tour has nothing to do with them.
