WWE/NETFLIX: Netflix Chief Content Officer on Vince McMahon: “He’s gone”


Posted on 2/01/124 by Colin Vassallo



Netflix Chief Content Officer Bela Bajaria discussed the
removal of Vince McMahon as Chairman of TKO Group during the
Next on Netflix press event at its Tudum Theater in
Hollywood.

“He’s gone. So he’s not there. He’s gone,” Bajaria said of
McMahon when she was asked about the recent allegations
against him.

Mentioning the 10-year, $5 billion deal Netflix signed with
WWE, Brandon Riegg, Vice President, Unscripted and
Documentary Series at Netflix, said that this will provide
Netflix with 52 weeks of live programming and hopefully a
way to expand both the Netflix and WWE audience.

“The truth is we don’t know how much bigger it can get. I
think we’re all really bullish on it, but we know that has
an incredibly consistent audience for the last several
decades,” Riegg continued. “And so that’s really first and
foremost where we’re starting at and then we’ll see where we
go from there.”
