programs and events; the possibility of a decline in the popularity of
our brand of sports entertainment; the continued importance of key
performers and the services of Vincent K. McMahon; possible adverse
changes in the regulatory atmosphere and related private sector
initiatives; the highly competitive, rapidly changing and increasingly
fragmented nature of the markets in which we operate and greater
financial resources or marketplace presence of many of our competitors;
uncertainties associated with international markets; our difficulty or
inability to promote and conduct our live events and/or other businesses
if we do not comply with applicable regulations; our dependence on our
intellectual property rights, our need to protect those rights, and the
risks of our infringement of others’ intellectual property rights; the
complexity of our rights agreements across distribution mechanisms and

and his interests may conflict with the holders of our Class A common
stock; a substantial number of shares are eligible for sale by the
McMahons and the sale, or the perception of possible sales, of those
shares could lower our stock price; and the relatively small public
“float” of our Class A common stock. In addition, our dividend is
dependent on a number of factors, including, among other things, our
liquidity and historical and projected cash flow, strategic plan
(including alternative uses of capital), our financial results and
condition, contractual and legal restrictions on the payment of
