WWE Exec Criticizes UFC's Audience

During the 25th annual ROTH Conference taking place from 3/17-3/20, WWE CFO George Barrios had the following to say about UFC's audience following Chael Sonnen's criticism that "no one on the WWE roster can count to eight:"

Barrios then touted WWE's diverse audience, and compared WWE fans to those of Disney on Ice, consisting of a wide range of people including adults, grandparents, parents and kids.
