– WWE posted this video about how fans can donate their airline miles for dollars to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation and World Wish Day.
– NJ.com published an article about investors keeping an eye on the success of this year’s WrestleMania. The article notes, PAA Research analyst Bradley Safalow doubted this year’s WrestleMania would garner more pay-per-view buys than last year’s show, and said that the decline in pay-per-view buys is why investors are anxiously awaiting for WWE to launch the network.
“If you go back to 2005, that was the peak for the company. They did 6 million pay-per-view buys that year,” said Safalow. “Some of the decline in pay-per-view is a function of ongoing trends in the media space. Some of it has to do with the company’s own creative arc in terms of relative popularity.”
