In the spirit of holiday giving, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announced today that the monthly subscription price of its WWE Network has been temporarily dropped to a mere $9.98.
“Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas, WWE Universe!” chortled company Chairman Vince McMahon in a Christmas-themed video message. “You’re welcome!”
Although the announcement ruffled the feathers of some WWE shareholders, who worried about a dip in profits due to the deep discount, McMahon insisted that “spreading a little Christmas joy” is far more important than money.
McMahon’s yuletide generosity didn’t end there; he announced he would personally support a local homeless shelter by donating 800 unworn XFL jerseys.
According to a press release, the holiday discount on the WWE Network will last until December 26, at which point the price will be jacked up to $17.99.
