Going public

From: "Samuel Hough" Scott,
         How much of the WWE's problems stem from being a publicly traded company? I know that there are some posters (flair4dagold jumps to mind) with more knowledge of business than I but it seems like some of the stagnation stems from that. The WWE is still turning a profit (?) and in a distressed economy I assume that's enough to keep them from taking chances. My thinking is that before it was only the McMahon family that the WWE had to answer to, now there are shareholders. Any truth to this? ————————— I never thought anyone thought otherwise, in fact.  Obviously it's 100% the reason for the state of affairs today.
