WWE states THQ's bankruptcy filing does not affect its financial outlook

Media corporation WWE, listed in THQ's recent bankruptcy filing with a claim of $45 million in the company as an unsecured creditor, stated today that THQ's filing is "immaterial" to its own financial statements.

WWE stated that it does not believe the "ultimate economic impact" for the game publisher's filing on its own finances will be detrimental "in light of the strength of the WWE brand and the historical performance of WWE's video game business."

WWE is known for its television and pay-per-view content, most notably the WWE wrestling franchise. The company, like THQ, is publicly traded, and broadcasts its content worldwide in 30 languages. Its most recent video game endeavor is WWE '13, the latest installment in its annual wrestling game series.

WWE did not list any unannounced games in progress in the recent bankruptcy filings.
