Stephanie McMahon talks about a variety of topics concerning WWE heading into SummerSlam weekend.
World Wrestling Entertainment is heading into its 32nd SummerSlam event this weekend from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. After SummerSlam, the company will be on the road to their SmackDown television debut on FOX in October. With the landscape of professional wrestling continuously growing with companies and organizations such as All Elite Wrestling and the National Wrestling Alliance jumping into the weekly wrestling television mix, WWE also wants to step its game up according to Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon. Stephanie shared during an interview with 'Fortune.com' that the company nearly has 1000 employees and will need more if they want to continue growing.
"I think resources [are the most challenging part of WWE's growth], quite frankly. Resources to keep up. Our company is now nearly 1,000 employees, and if we really want to grow the way we want to we're going to need a lot more people to help us. But we're lean and mean, and it's always been a very entrepreneurial spirit here in WWE, and it's one of the things I feel people love about being here. We all wear many many hats. There's a new challenge every single day. It's constant reprioritization to try and stay on top of everything." She explained.
