Just like any other business in the world, the WWE is also a business that tries to cut cost wherever they can. Some of the cost-cutting methods hurt the product. However, the WWE is now owned by TKO and they sometimes make decisions for the WWE, which may help them cut cost.
One of the decisions that TKO recently made is to scale back WWE house shows, which are basically non-televised events. This may also help some wrestlers recover from their injury.
Eric Bischoff Shares His Opinion on WWE Possibly Scaling Back Their House Shows
Former WCW President, Eric Bischoff, recently shared his thoughts about the new WWE house show plans.
According to him it is just part of business. "It's why I don't often pay attention to these public announcements or comments or even the Wall Street stuff that happens once a quarter, whenever it is," Bischoff said. "It's such nonsense, and that was like a whole bunch of verbiage — for those of you that read Dave Meltzer's dirt sheet, that means words.
It's just a whole bunch of gaga basically saying, 'We're losing money in small markets, so we're not gonna go there anymore to save money.' " "That's it. That's all it means. It doesn't mean anything else. You don't have to be a Harvard business grad to react to something like that.
They're losing money in small markets. It doesn't make any sense anymore," he continued. "They're growing in other markets, so put your resources behind your growth and quit doing things that don't make money. F**k. If I was running a Kool-Aid stand, that would be the same thing.
Simple. Good for them. I did the same thing in WCW." The main reason why the WWE might be alright with this decision is because the live shows that WWE puts out are doing extremely well! At one time, the WWE had to put out house shows regularly, as that was how they used to keep fans interested in the product.
However, this is no longer the case! The WWE has also acquired services of some of the best wrestlers that left AEW. This includes CM Punk, who was the most popular free agent in the world at the time he was released from AEW.
Many people believe that under Triple H, the WWE might become the product that can never be beaten by any wrestling company in the world right now.
