Default Does WWE make money from TV shows?

Such as Raw or Smackdown. Or do they mostly serve to advertise/build up pay per views

In the words of daniel bryan...YES!! YES!! YES!! if you are talking about live events then yes they make money from the fans buying tickets. If you are talking about the televised programming, then also yes because they get paid for views and sponsoring.

I am a wwe superstar for raw and wwe does make money from the smackdown and raw shows they get money for tickets bought and shirts sold but at Pay-per view the money you pay goes to the cable company not wwe its tvs way to get money and wwe's to get money is wweshop.com and selling live tickets and that puts money in superstars pockets plus the half we get in travel money

Of course they do. People have to pay to get the channel on their TV and some of that money goes to WWE. The more people that watch the shows means the more money that WWE make. Also when they advertsie other shows/organisations on the programme that generates money as well.

Hell yea but more so right before and right after a ppv. The arenas are usually. Jam packed. They make about $78,000. Just tickets. Food and merch. Get them a extra $15,000 per showq

Well yeah obviously... If they only made their money off of PPV's then they wouldn't still be around.

Not directly. Their TV shows serve as advertisements, infomercials if you will, for their PPVs and merchandise. They get SOME money from their TV sponsors (the networks get most of it), but their income comes from PPV and merchandise sales.































Their TV shows are not on "premium" channels, channels you have to pay extra to get; they come with standard cable/satellite program packages. So there isn't any cut of the "premium channel" profits stuff there.
