WWE Stock Rises 5% After SummerSlam

WWE’s stock, much like their week to week ratings, has a tendency to fluctuate from time to time. Over the course of the weekend, the company’s stock went down 5% in the midst of the SummerSlam festivities. Now, though, at today’s close, it has jumped back up 5.09% to 66.70 as we look ahead to what should be a busy autumn period for the company.
