WWE Fans Rip CNBC Article
WWE fans have ripped apart an article published yesterday on CNBC.com that decided to use the tired old “it’s fake” cliché to sneer at pro wrestling fans.
Lawrence Lewitinn, one of the few analysts to suggest that WWE stock will soon plummet, wrote:

“You’re looking at a model that’s in decline and valuation is stupidly high.”
Interestingly commenter TRob pointed out that NBC Universal owns CNBC and the USA Network, which airs RAW.
