- Vince McMahon is still 100% committed to WWE's PG initiative and there are absolutely no plans to alter the ratings of the company's programming. While some have speculated that recent promos done by The Rock and Brock Lesnar are a sign of WWE going in a different direction, I have been reassured that is not the case and McMahon stands by his decision to produce family-friendly programming.

- There has been talk of offering a WWE pay-per-views package that can be purchased for a flat rate, much like what the NFL does with their "Direct Ticket" on DirecTV, the NBA with their "League Pass," MLB with "Extra Innings," or the NHL's "Center Ice" where a viewer would be able to purchase all of the company's pay-per-views for the year. This part of many different options being considered for WWE pay-per-views as the company is formulating whether or not pay-per-views will be included on the WWE Network.

- Despite the struggling WWE stock price, there are no plans to end their status as a public company. Vince McMahon feels being a public company allows them to tap into different elements and it's more than one man's vision. McMahon feels the all-time low stock price is due to the company's poor performance in 2011 and is not indicative of the company's recent success, especially with Wrestlemania XXVIII setting a record buyrate.
