WWE Is going through a lot of changes right now, which is nothing new for the company. At this time, though, the company is seriously going through a historic shift, and their loyal fan base has been with them through it all.

WWE makes a ton of money on their television rights deals, and they are about to enter into a new round of talks. Having the ability to boast impressive numbers always helps lock down better prices, and Vince McMahon’s company has a lot to be proud of right now in terms of viewership numbers.

In the company’s 1st quarter 2023 earnings report, it was stated that WWE’s viewership was up significantly. The new regime in WWE is obviously doing a lot to attract fan attention on television.

Viewership for WWE’s weekly flagship programs, Raw and SmackDown, both increased 7%, significantly outperforming overall cable and broadcast television, which declined 15% and 6%, respectively.


The UFC and WWE’s deal to merge the company is still in process. Only time will tell how things will be viewed in a few months, but WWE certainly has a lot of interest right now.

The first quarter of programming is usually strong for WWE every year. The Royal Rumble and WrestleMania are two massive events that generally attract a lot of eyes, and this year was no exception.
