Stephanie McMahon said she is not concerned with any competition the company may face.
In an interview with multichannel.com, McMahon said she views challenges and obstacles as opportunities for the company to grow. Amidst a continuously-growing WWE Network, McMahon said WWE is always trying to give fans what they want.
"Well, I think the opportunities are the same as the challenges," McMahon said. "From a technology standpoint, we want to be able to offer fans everything that they’re asking for, and the biggest frustration comes when the technology just isn’t there yet to do it. But we’re constantly driving and pushing our partners to help make sure that that happens. Again, serving the appetite of our audience is really our greatest opportunity as well as our greatest challenge, because the more we provide them the hungrier they get."
One of the talking points regarding WWE is the waning viewership on its flagship show Monday Night RAW. When talking about the challenges and potential competition the company may have, McMahon said WWE's viewership still topples other promotions' viewership numbers.
McMahon also touted WWE's partnership with the E! television network and the two WWE shows on the network, Total Divas and Total Bellas. She said WWE is just getting started when it comes to showcasing the company's stories.
"Well I think imitation is the truest form of flattery, but I don’t think the viewership with some of those other organizations at this point is competition for us," McMahon said. "If anything I think it just drives more interest in the genre itself. When you look at reality shows like Total Divas or Total Bellas, and when you look at films like our partnership with MGM for [theatrical film] Fighting With My Family, the story of [WWE wrestler] Paige’s life, I think we’re really just scratching the surface of the deeper stories that these individuals, as well as their characters, have to tell."
McMahon is active on WWE television, serving as the commissioner for Monday Night RAW.
