PWTorch.com Newsletter is reporting that the WWE have announced they will report the company’s second quarter 2009 earnings on Tuesday, August 6 before the stock market opens for business. The quarter will include revenue and profit from WrestleMania 25 that will certainly boost the quarterly numbers above the poor first quarter 2009 numbers. Vince McMahon will be hosting the quarterly conference call with investors at 11:00 a.m. EST for the second straight month. He’ll be joined by “senior management,” which will most-likely include CEO/wife Linda McMahon and COO Donna Goldsmith. During last quarter’s conference call, McMahon was quite frank in his assessment of the first quarter. He described the quarter as below-expectations and said WWE could do better as a whole.
Retired WWE star JBL posted a WWE Universe blog regarding his running with the bulls experience in Pamplona, Spain. “I was in arena today when pile up occurred in tunnel, bulls and people ended up in a big pile and the worst thing that can happen occurred-a bull got turned around and went crazy,” JBL wrote. “This is where the guy got trampled; I haven’t heard an update yet on his condition.
“When bulls are just running they are dangerous, however, if a bull gets separated and turned around, this is the most dangerous time. After the last bull gets in the arena tunnel is closed and you are in the arena with a sold out crowd and a bunch of bulls. Great stuff. This is something I would recommend to everyone to see once, it is awesome.
“I went to bull fight last night and hated that part; I don’t see any sport in sticking swords in helpless animals until they die. I think it is sick and anyone who likes it is sick as well. This is pathetic to me.” The full blog can be read at WWE.com.
