WWE Executive John Brody says Vince McMahon is ready for the company to return to performing in arenas if the people in charge safely re-open them.
Brody – WWE’s Executive Vice President, global head of sales and partnerships – was interviewed on the SportsPro podcast this week where he talked about WWE filming shows out of the Performance Center in Orlando.
During this portion of the conversation, Brody was asked how the change to filming at the PC has changed WWE’s content strategy now that everyone involved in the shows doesn’t have to travel to a new town each week for shows.
“Yeah look, first of all, if people will open arenas safely, we’re ready. Our Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon has said we’re ready to go and entertain and put smiles on people’s faces so we look forward to the next step in the transition,” he said before noting that shooting at the PC has been different since it wasn’t a set, it was a training center prior to the pandemic.
“When we’re in the time of reduced travel, we’re just trying to produce content. Deliver content. Give fans the ability to ingest content,” Brody added. “We’ve just had to pivot and evolve based on the realities of this global pandemic.”
