Vince McMahon Talks Going PG, UFC, Cracks IWC Member Up, Meltzer Also Involved
by Brad Curran on October 12, 2009

I cased you missed them, here are the only two quotes anyone’s paying attention to from an article the AP did about the WWE on Friday:

“We just followed our audience and tried to listen to them,” McMahon, WWE chairman, said. “It’s a more sophisticated product. It’s just the right move business-wise, but more specifically the right move in terms of reaching our audience.”

(PWI’s Dave Scherer thinks this is hilarious, by the way.)

Vince also threw the internet shark pool some chum with his thoughts on UFC:

“You really can’t compete with that,” he said. “Why not deliver a more sophisticated product and not go to those extremes? If the audience wants those extremes, they know where to go and how to get it.”

Dave Meltzer was also quoted in the article:

“Their public image was pretty bad,” said Dave Meltzer, publisher of the trade publication Wrestling Observer Newsletter. “They took a major hit, and said ‘we’ve got to become a kinder, nicer company.'”
