Vince McMahon took questions from investors on a conference call after the release of WWE’s 2015 quarter four earnings and full year financial results on Thursday.

On these calls, Vince and WWE Chief Financial Officer George Barrios do their best to reassure investors, while providing vague answers that toe the company line.

Some of the more notable lines that are getting attention include Vince talking about WWE overcoming injuries at Wrestlemania 32 by “being creative” to produce an awesome show.

He’s not worried the WWE Network lost 50,000 subscribers in the quarter because overall consumption is high.

Vince acknowledged that WWE’s television ratings are down but not as much as the networks they are on overall. He explained the company no longer lives or dies by TV ratings like they used to before new media and they don’t matter as much anymore. However, he stated TV is still extremely important to WWE.
