Triple H Wants To Take Over The World
…Triple H wants to take over the world.
WWE have posted the corporation version of
a pay-per-view, their 2018 Business Partner
Summit, on their company website.
The event took place in WrestleMania week,
and was headlined by business world megastars:
John Brody of Sales and International
George Barrios and Michelle Wilson having
a Road Map for 2018 match for the WWE Business
And John Cena and Charlotte Flair raising
the arm of Cricket Wireless for WWE Business
Partner of the Year.
During the event, George Barrios and Triple
H – looking in no way like a supervillain
– debuted WWE’s next big buzzword: “Global
Business, business, business.
John Pollock of Post Wrestling has since reported
WWE have actually trademarked the phrase,
and it’ll involve the company creating “NXT
brands around the world as a global territorial
Apparently this would involve making customised
shows for countries WWE is looking to expand
in, filmed in the native language and using
And few partnerships are as valuable to WWE
as their new bromance with Saudi Arabia.
WWE Greatest Royal Rumble Pay Revealed?
During the talk, Triple H teased the idea
of a WWE brand in the Middle East, and revealed
the company’s deal with Saudi Arabia is
for ten years.
The relationship will fully start with a very
expensive bang in tomorrow’s Greatest Royal
Rumble event, a show that has the presumably
very pricey part-timers Brock Lesnar, John
Cena, Triple H, The Undertaker, Chris Jericho,
Rey Mysterio, The Big Show, Mark Henry and
Kurt Angle, and the entire rest of the main
roster – unless you’re a woman.
It’s been speculated that Saudi Arabia is
paying WWE an enormous amount of money to
put on the show, to cover all those names,
the huge expense of flying all the wrestlers
and backstage crew to the country, and still
to have a sizeable chunk left over for profit.
On Jerry Lawler’s latest Dinner with the
King podcast, his guest Jim Cornette appeared
to have some insider knowledge, revealing
WWE is being paid “millions and millions
and millions… just more money than you’ve
Lawler added he believes that includes “a
heck of a payoff” for the company’s female
wrestlers – who aren’t allowed to compete
at the event because of women in sports not
being culturally accepted in the country.
Now PWStream have revealed just how many millions
Saudi Arabia are paying for the show: “Per
sources: WWE are making in the region of $100-200M
for #WWEGRR just for hosting the event.”
And that’s not the ceiling for the show’s
potential earnings, as the report also notes:
“the figure is just for hosting it.
Merch, tickets, etc. will bolster the figure
Insane revenue stream.”
