* A shareholder requested the creation of a WWE affinity program. Vince McMahon agreed to look into possibly doing that.

* Vince McMahon said that WWE is considering canceling it’s tour of Mexico in late May due to the swine flu outbreak. He also announced a Mexican tour for October of 2009.

* Vince McMahon partially blamed the decline of pay-per-view buys on more fans choosing to watch pay-per-views with each other rather than individually ordering the pay-per-views.

* A shareholder asked if “Mr. McMahon” could be the person who ends the ’s undefeated streak. Vince McMahon said that him ending the streak would probably anger a lot of people, so it’s unlikely to happen.
