DirecTV Threatens, McMahon, Bischoff Respond

“Clearly we need to quickly re-evaluate the economics and viability of their business with us, as it now appears the WWE feels they do not need their PPV distributors,(the audience for WWE pay-per-views) has been steadily declining, and this new low-cost competitive offering will only accelerate this trend.”

Former WCW, and TNA executive Eric Bischoff weighed in on the skirmish with the following tweet:
