The Miami Herald has a new article online on WWE’s relationship with Full Sail University and features quotes from Triple H. Below are the highlights:
Donating ticket proceeds:
Levesque said: “We did some events here. We turned them into TV. We got the idea to do the show here. The show took off. We didn’t want to have no value for tickets, so we started charging a little for tickets. Then it was like, ‘You know what. Let’s take that money and give it back to the school. Let’s make a scholarship fund and give it to the students.’”
WWE officials lecturing Full Sail students quarterly:
“We have our exec team coming down here and lecturing their students quarterly,” Levesque said. “Our marketing people come down to talk about marketing. Our digital people come down and discuss digital strategies and social media initiatives. We give them real world corporate vision and experience they can’t get anywhere else.
“It’s a really great working opportunity, and this place is like a huge think tank for WWE in a way. So it’s a win-win for everybody.”
