Renee Dupree sues WWE over Network royalties


Hi Scott,


Do you think anything will come of this? I remember a while back that you said that they haven’t quite figured out how royalties and ppv payouts will work now that most everything is on the Network.

​I’m no lawyer, but I do know he doesn’t have a leg to stand on. WWE contracts are very specifically worded, saying that you get royalties from specific things (home video releases, merchandise, TV appearances, whatever) and they specifically outline what those things are and leave almost no room for future vague things like "online streaming services that don’t exist when you signed the contract." ​
