-WWE reported $211 million in revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017, which is the most the company has ever seen in fourth quarter history. Despite the big number, however, overall fourth-quarter profits were down, at $4.8 million, due to taxes being paid in the quarter.

-The company produced $801 million in revenue, with $32.6 million of that number being direct profits, down slightly from the previous year.

In somewhat related news, according to CNN Money, WWE is currently worth nearly $3 billion. Sales swelled 11% in 2016 and grew another 10% last year. The stock has raced out of the gate this year, jumping 12%. Last year, the stock climbed 66%.
