WWE Executives are big influencers.
Sports Business Journal has named Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Vince McMahon, Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon, and President and Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan as top influencers in media.
There is clearly a repositioning of the WWE to a media business under Khan, who joined the company from CAA Sports in August 2020, especially with the move to Peacock as part of a five-year deal reported to be more than $1 billion. High-profile projects include a multipart Netflix docuseries on Vince McMahon’s life and a deal with Blumhouse Television on a scripted series about the WWE in the 1990s.
Other influencers include executives from ESPN, CBS Sports, Fox Sports, and Turner Sports.
WWE has reported recorded revenue thanks to deals with television network deals, event deals with Saudi Arabia, and the deal with Peacock.
Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Raw beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
