WWE Network Stalling?, WWE Live Events Department Update
|By Raj Giri||November 14, 2012 | Comments|
Vince McMahon reportedly has little, if any, day-to-day contact with most departments. Vince just deals with the heads of the departments, specifically Stephanie (who has people report to her from live events / marketing / digital / creative / publishing), Triple H (talent relations) and Kevin Dunn (TV production).
- According to a source, the WWE Network continues to stall out with almost the entire staff initially hired for the start-up division now re-assigned to other divisions, mostly in Kevin Dunn's television production department or the website / digital division. A few top people are still working on developing programs for the network, but no network-related programming is currently slated to begin production, which is not a good sign.
When asked to comment, a WWE spokesperson replied, "As stated by CFO George Barrios in our Q3 2012 earnings call on November 1, work continues towards the creation of a future WWE network, including hiring key staff, setting up necessary infrastructure and producing programming for the launch of a WWE Network."
