AXXESS ON-SALE UPDATE, WHY THE BRAND EXTENSION ENDED, ROYAL RUMBLE VIDEO AND MORE

By Steven Fernandes on 2013-01-22 20:33:50

Ad Age has named Stephanie McMahon on their "40 under 40" list for 2013. They mention her current role in WWE as "overseeing the development of TV, pay-per-view, print, digital and social-media programming" adding her influence will grow if the WWE Network ever launches. They also quote her as saying the reason she doesn't appear on WWE TV anymore is "it just got to be too much" as she started to have children.  As for why the Brand Extension ended she said, "We are all telling the same stories. And digital and social offer the ability to continue storylines 24/7 so our fans can consume the content anytime, anywhere on the device they prefer."

WWE posted the annual 'By the numbers' video showcasing the Royal Rumble on their Youtube channel. Unless I missed it, I don't think they showed it on RAW last night.  You can watch it by clicking here.

The Axxess pre-sale date has been pushed to tomorrow, Wednesday, at 10 am, according to Izod Centre's twitter.

The Q4 Web Systems website has a two-part interview with Michael Weitz, SVP Investor Relations and Financial Planning, talking about WWE having a dedicated twitter account for their Investor Relations team.  You can check out part one here and part two here.
