Stephanie, on WWE’s decision to go through with Crown Jewel:

“It was an incredibly difficult decision for our company,” McMahon said. “ We were trying to weigh all of the different factors and ultimately made a business decision based on our contactual obligations much the way other American companies are handling their business and we held the event.”

Stephanie, on WWE’s future:

“10-20-30 years from now, there’s no reason we can’t be as big or bigger than Disney. Now that’s a tall order, especially given recent transactions. However, there’s no reason we can’t get there. You have to dream big, have big, bold goals, and go after them.”
