WWE recently scored a huge win after Fox decided to offer them $1 billion for the rights to air SmackDown Live on Friday nights.

But as Brad Shepard discussed on Backstage In WWE, the backstage reaction in WWE might have been one of amusement seeing how they just scored a big television contract and turned around to produce two lackluster shows that week.

“I was talking to a source in WWE and they were reiterating how wild it was to see such a drag of a show translate into such huge TV contracts and you know how the writing and dollars don’t seem to correlate like they used to and it really seems to be more about quantity of content than consistency. Which is what they provide.”

“You know Fox can bring WWE in and have a solid rating even if it’s not spectacular in any way.”

If WWE wants to keep their viewers they might need to step it up because it’s important to not lose any fans in the meantime before a new Fox deal starts that could add even more numbers to their fanbase.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
