George Barrios Compares UFC Audience to WWE Audience
As noted earlier, Chael Sonnen said no one on the WWE roster can count to eight, while discussing Vince McMahon challenging Dana White to a fight. WWE CFO George Barrios shed some light on how he feels about 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.
