- Based on how much WWE was receiving for Superstars when it aired on television, it's believed that WWE is making approximately $100,000 per week for the new WWE Main Event show on Ion.
WWE is also making around $175,000 per week for the additional hour of WWE RAW and around $75,000 per week for Saturday Morning Slam.
There's certainly an argument to be made that WWE is at risk of over-exposing its product with the additional programming (especially that third hour of RAW), but it's hard for a public company to turn away that extra $18 million per year in additional revenue.
- Former WWE superstar Caylen Croft, who teamed with Trent Baretta as the Dude Busters, is now an elementary school teacher at Florida's Hillsborough County school district. Croft, real name Kris Pavone, recently spoke to Tampa Bay Online about his transition from the ring to the classroom.
"Teaching kids is a completely whole new world," he said. "I absolutely love it." He taught at Lopez Elementary last year and is at Seminole Heights Elementary this year.
