In an interview with MultiChannel News, WWE’s Stephanie McMahon commented on a variety of topics, including what WWE’s biggest challenge is right now and competition from other companies.
On the biggest challenges facing the WWE right now: “Well, I think the opportunities are the same as the challenges. 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.”
On competition from other companies: “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. If anything I think it just drives more interest in the genre itself.”
