Foti, Jr., remind investors that they have until September 23, 2014 to file lead plaintiff applications in a securities class action lawsuit against World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. (NYSE:WWE), if they purchased the Company's securities during the period between October 31, 2013 and May 16, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period").

About the Lawsuit

WWE and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On May 16, 2014, WWE disclosed that it had reached a multiyear deal with NBCUniversal for its Raw and SmackDown programs, stating that the annual value of its television distribution agreements would reach $200 million, well below what investors were expecting. Daniel Moore, an analyst with CJS Securities, said in a research note that, "Given management's more optimistic tone and the fact that other major sports franchises have garnered much higher increases, this outcome is likely to be viewed as disappointing by many investors."

On this news, the value of WWE's stock plummeted by 43%.
