Earlier today, WWE held a conference call where the company announced second quarter earnings and much more. A couple months ago, WZ exclusively reported that WWE is entertaining the idea of running a one hour pre-game show that would air before Raw, something Vince McMahon hinted at during today's call. We also previously reported that Vince McMahon spoke on UFC President Dana White recently visiting WWE headquarters, and ProWrestling.net has provided more information on the call. Below are some highlights:
Vince McMahon said that while business would be flat if you exclude Wrestlemania 27, he was still proud of the second quarter earnings.
He said the company is considering rolling out additional programming and even hinted a one-hour show airing prior to Monday Night Raw.
In an update on the planned WWE Network, Vince said they have meetings coming up this week about the project.
When a caller asked about the company getting a "nice bump" from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson appearing, Vince said they have plans to have him appear at multiple PPV events beyond Wrestlemania 28.
Barrios stated something new would happen with NXT and Superstars in the third or fourth quarter.
