WWE really wants an Emmy and recently bought several Superstars to the For Your Consideration event where they lobbied to get a few of their programs nominated for the prestigious award.
Even a nomination for an Emmy would raise the value WWE has in many ways and provide a notch in their belt as they continue growing in the mainstream.
During the FYC event, WWE rolled out the red carpet for their Superstars for a reason. All of their hard work seems to have paid off because several WWE programs ended up on the Emmy prelim ballot.
Now Stephanie McMahon is sending out a plea to fans to retweet her so the Emmy committee will choose WWE programming for an Emmy nomination. It’s a clever tactic, let’s see if it works.
