WWE Exec On UFC – “It’s A Lot Of Guys, It’s A Lot Of Cigars And A Lot Of Smoke”

UFC fighter Chasel Sonnen recently said no one on the WWE roster can count to eight, while discussing Vince McMahon challenging Dana White to a fight. WWE Chief Financial Officer George Barrios revealed his thoughts on the UFC audience at the 25th Annual ROTH Conference.

Barrios, who admitted he’s been to a UFC event, said:

“It’s a lot of guys, it’s a lot of cigars, and a lot of smoke,”

He contrasted that WWE’s audience is similar to Disney on Ice events with grandparents, parents and kids. Barrios touted WWE’s age distribution and diversity of the audience.

    Anyone claiming that the WWE and pro wrestling was built on the same original audience that UFC now pulls in, you’re missing the point.
