They aren't just making movies anymore.

 “Our new expanded focus on television and digital continues to push WWE Studios as a multi-platform production company, with the ability to create original content for global distribution as we have successfully done for the big screen” he said.

It also has a comment from Vince McMahon, who welcomes the move: "Given the size of our fan base and their appetite for WWE programming well beyond our core in-ring shows, this is the ideal time to further establish the WWE brand with new genres across platforms. WWE Studios is open for business with this new TV and digital initiative.”

Founded in 2002 as WWE Films, WWE Studios has mainly focused on putting out movies, usually featuring a WWE Superstar as a main star or supporting character. They started with theatrical releases such as The Marine and 12 Rounds, but have mainly focused on putting out home video releases this decade. Their most recent release was Armed Response back in August. That had Seth Rollins in a role.
