“We’re always looking to pair dynamic content with the best formats for listeners,” said Moses Soyoola, Senior Vice President, Endeavor Audio. “Through our new partnership with WWE, we’re looking forward to tapping into their iconic event portfolio and talent base to create compelling audio content for their fans.”
Additional details, including launch timing and content creative, will be announced in the coming weeks.
Paul ‘HHH’ Levesque took to Twitter to hype the announcement. The EVP of talent, live events and creative said: “Another expansion of @WWE’s massive social and digital footprint. The partnership between @EndeavorAudio and #WWE will bring a best-in-class product to our fans.”
A number of retired WWE legends – including Stone Cold Steve Austin and Edge & Christian – already host successful podcasts. It’s very possible these shows will among the first to join The WWE Podcast Network schedule.
