Live Events

Our multiple sports entertainment brands allow us to perform more than 500 live events a year within the United States and abroad. WWE held 126 total events in the third quarter of 2016, including 115 events in North America and 11 events in international markets.

The success of the WWE is due primarily to the continuing popularity of our Superstars. We currently have more than 140 Superstars under exclusive contracts, ranging from multi-year guaranteed contracts with established Superstars to developmental contracts with our Superstars in training. In addition, we continually seek to identify, recruit and develop additional talent for our business.

Superstars highly trained and motivated independent contractors, whose compensation is tied to the revenue that they help generate. We own the rights of substantially all of our characters and exclusively license the rights we do not own through agreements with our Superstars.

Our multiple sports entertainment brands allow us to perform more than 500 live events a year within the United States and abroad. WWE held 81 total events in the second quarter of 2016, including 62 events in North America and 19 events in international markets.
