WWE issued the following press release on Monday to announce its partnership with DraftKings.
BOSTON & STAMFORD, Conn. – March 29, 2021 – DraftKings (Nasdaq: DKNG) and WWE (NYSE: WWE) today announced that DraftKings will become an Official Gaming Partner of WWE, subject to regulatory approval in all applicable jurisdictions. The collaboration centers on DraftKings’ popular free-to-play pools product and will launch with an inaugural free-to-play pool at WWE’s two-night pop culture extravaganza, WrestleMania, on April 10 and 11.
Powell’s POV: It’s a logical partnership and it will be interesting to see what type of games the fantasy sports website comes up with for WWE events.
