Feb 22, 2016 Wrestling Observer Newsletter: WWE 2015 Financial Report, Kevin Randleman passes

World Wrestling Entertainment released its 2015 financials, ending the year with a record setting $658,7768,000 in revenue, and a far from record setting $24,144,000 in profits.

Those numbers compare favorably with $542,620,000 in revenue in 2014 and $30,072,000 in losses in 2014. The turnaround is largely because the network is in its second year and doesn’t have the first year start-up costs and the period of first building subscribers numbers. In addition, WWE’s television rights fees worldwide increased from $176,700,000 in 2014 to $231,100,000, of which $35,100,000 was in additional profit from the prior year.
