UFC’s Dana White Says The WWE Network Will Devalue WWE’s Product, Talks Vince McMahon
UFC President Dana White says the WWE Network devalues WWE’s product and the UFC won’t be following suit.
According to FOX Sports, Dana discussed the WWE Network at a luncheon this week:
“It’s ridiculous. I hate to sound like I’m attacking the WWE or (I) devalue what they did because Vince McMahon, say whatever you want — and he’s always smashing us and talking s—t about us, but I will tell you this, I was watching WWE I was a little kid and Vince was the commentator in WWE — this guy has been kicking ass, breaking rules and doing things that people said he couldn’t do over and over and over again. Now I’m older I don’t get the whole thing, it doesn’t work for me, but what he’s able to do, the ratings he’s able to pull and the things he’s done … And when I look at his model and he’s basically taking everything in and devalued it. Saying everything we do is worth $10. That doesn’t make sense to me,” White said during a media luncheon on Monday.”
“If he pulls in 2 million subscribers, he’s crushing it. So it’s a risky move, it’s a crazy move, but Vince has been doing risky, crazy s—t since the beginning of time. If anybody can do it, maybe Vince can do it.”
