Jey Uso recently interviewed with The State Journal-Register recently and talked about the possibility of splitting up from his brother. When asked about it, Uso responded with the following:
"I feel like me and my brother will never break up," Jey said. "Why can't we be tag-team champions/WWE World Champion or Intercontinental Champion and tag champs? I don't think it has been done before. But if it came down to it, I think we'd draw a lot of money (if my brother and I broke up and faced each other). Have my dad come in there and get involved."
There have been a couple more articles come out this week regarding how much money Vince McMahon has lost in the past couple of months. First, Forbes.com revealed that Vince has lost $750 million since this featured article of theirs was published back in March. Forbes also mentiond that WWE shares were up 89% in the first three months of 2014, while Vince's net worth also peaked at $1.6 billion in mid-March. Of course, we've noted that Vince is no longer in the billionaire's club due to WWE's recent losses.
Another big outlet, The Motley Fool, came out with an article of their own today looking at WWE's current financial state. In addition to the TV contracts and WWE Network subscribers being lower than anticipated, the Fool writer blamed a lot of WWE's declined stock on the actual creative direction of their company. Check out an excerpt from their article below:
"In the last few years, WWE has spent a lot of money and air time pumping up the debut of one star or the other. Future stars like Ryback, Fandango, Damien Sandow, Zack Ryder, Tensai, Sin Cara, are just a small list of performers that started with high expectations, and today are little more than filler for WWE's weekly programming. This type of relative failure rate is disconcerting because some of the main event stars haven't changed in years. John Cena and Randy Orton are still a primary focus of nearly every pay-per-view. This is a key difference between WWE's future (the WWE Network) and Netflix or HBO."
