WWE financial reports that probably won’t help morale among former or remaining company workers, more Triple H than you might have ever wanted and some television built for next month’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view, along with the deaths of a couple of old school referees are our top stories this week in the always interesting world of professional wrestling.

Shortly after WWE announced releases and furloughs of several dozen on-camera performers and behind the scenes personnel, the company confirmed payment of healthy dividends and significant profits at the quarterly financial call. While many revenue streams were down, the losses were more than compensated for by income from television rights fees that allowed WWE to be bottom-line profitable. This led to a rise in the price of company stock.
