I regret not buying WWE stock years ago when it was around $7-$9 a share.  Would have made a killing because I likely would never had sold it as it would have just been cool to have WWE stock.  Now with a wife, house, and child and it at $59 a share I would definitely be selling and taking my tidy profit.

I feel the same way. I didn't have the money when the WWE went public so I never bought it. Kicking myself now

I don't like the idea of it going to 3 hours though. I still think RAW being at 3 hours you get a lot of filler and replays. Better at 2 hours IMO

You have to think the brand split has to be ending by the time FOX gets SmackDown as I can't believe they are paying all that money for half the roster and same with USA paying a ton for solo RAW with half a roster. 

We already have joint PPVs so they need to just end the brand split and unify the titles over the next year.

I don't think Fox can go 3 hours unless they run the show 7-10pm due to local news.
