Thanks for posting the article. It was interesting, since I'm not that familiar with the history of the WWE buying WCW. Though the author makes several errors in understanding the business side of both the UFC and WWE.

Anyone who thinks the WWE makes the majority of its revenue on PPV, probably shouldn't tell Dana White, "sit down and take some notes, class is about to begin." It's not a good look...

The UFC is certainly closer, they certainly make a plurality of their revenue from PPV. But just from reading summaries on S&P reports on Zuffa, it's probably not a majority.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.
