WWE Reportedly Looking To Trim $20 Million From Their Budget, Entrances & More Being Cut



Vince McMahon

It was reported earlier this week that WWE is looking to trim $20 million from their budget this year.

Apparently production will see a number of cuts in various places. For example, WWE has reportedly nixed Fandango’s curtain entrance and stopped using Bad News Barrett’s podium. It was said that the truck WWE used to transport those items and other items was taken off the road, saving around $250,000 per year.

Rant Sports noted that WWE is using similar stage sets for RAW, SmackDown and pay-per-views now and the ring ropes on all shows are all white now. Some pyro for wrestler entrances also may be cut back on.

    i guess now they’re reconsidering offering Lesnar those millions.

    They need to get rid of Orton’s baby oil, that’s the big one.

    • Minkus

      OTRS fan?

      • Monkey D. Luffy

        Excuse me?

  • The Saber

    The sets have been the same forever, also it’s been a long time since we’ve seen fandango’s gold curtain. Why is this news?

  • Guest

    I think they should use the Raw is War titantron again

  • Paul Petit-Frere

    I hope this doesn’t affect NXT

    • Venice Joe Pettijohn Jr.

      Oh it will. It’s production values will be among the most cut. They will also cut way back on the amount of names they use on it.

      • Paul Petit-Frere

        Ugh i just can’t see NXT with white ropes though, it wouldn’t fit the color scheme at all

        • Stupidmarkslikeme

          Production will never be cut at NXT as it is a shared production cost by Full Sail and WWE. Not that it matters because it is Extremely cost efficient for the WWE. They Company is just gonna trim all the fat. Good start with Entrances i mean does fandango really need that cheep curtain thing anyway?

    I love that they are having financial problems. Maybe it’ll light a fire under their ass like the competition from WCW and ECW did back in the day. . . you know, when wrestling was good.
