Today’s Miami Herald has an article up with with quotes by WWE Executive Vice President of Global Media, Shane McMahon. Some highlights:

WWE looking to build a Wrestling Hall of Fame: “We’ve been close a number of times. We actually looked at a place in Orlando a few years ago. We don’t know where it’s going to settle, yet. I think it’s probably still a couple of years away, but we’re really anxious to do it.” He added that they have a lot of memorabilia in a warehouse in preparation for the project.

WWE’s International Expansion: “The countries that we are in, we want to make better. The countries where we are not currently, which aren’t that many, we want to get in, get the market and then bring all of our properties in there. The first thing that we do, from our game plan standpoint, is you have to get on the air. So you need television. Once you have a television partner, you start to build certain things with them. After that, you usually bring in a live event. That’s usually the next hit. Then from there, you bring in your merchandising, your licensing and all the other intellectual property aspects, and that’s how we build the marketplace.”

Another WWE Brand?: “There could be another entity that develops. We’ll have to see what happens.”
