WWE to handle PPV production for Rolling Stones show


As part of the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary, WWE will produce and distribute a live pay-per-view titled “One More Shot” from the band’s final show at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on December 15.

This production is the first that WWE is producing for another entertainment show and Variety reports that WWE was asked to handle the show for their ability to handle big PPV productions including WrestleMania.

“WWE is ecstatic to bring the Rolling Stones into your living room,” said WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon in a press release issued yesterday.

The report also suggests that WWE has been looking to monetize its production business through concerts and other deals and this Rolling Stones show is the first high-profile deal that has been announced.
