Item 1.01.
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 7, 2013, WWE Jet Services, Inc. (“Borrower Subsidiary”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (the “Registrant”), entered into a Loan and Aircraft Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with RBS Asset Finance, Inc. (“RBS”), pursuant to which Borrower Subsidiary issued a note to RBS in the principal amount of $31,567,644.36 (the “Note”). The Note bears interest at a rate of 2.18% per annum, is payable in quarterly installments of $405,548.82 and has a final maturity of August 7, 2020. The Note may be prepaid in whole but not in part after August 7, 2015. Prepayments prior to August 7, 2016 carry a prepayment penalty of 2.0% of the prepaid amount; between August 8, 2016 and August 7, 2018 carry a prepayment penalty of 1.0% of the prepaid amount; and thereafter carry no prepayment penalty. The Note and the indebtedness evidenced thereby (collectively, the “Loan”) is secured by a first priority perfected security interest in Borrower Subsidiary's aircraft, a 2007 Bombardier Global 5000, which was purchased on August 7, 2013 with proceeds from the Loan (the “Aircraft”). The Loan is guaranteed in full by the Registrant. $3.0 million of the Loan proceeds have been held back by RBS and allocated to certain refurbishment work to be done to the Aircraft. Any amounts not used for permitted refurbishment of the Aircraft will be applied to subsequent payment installment(s) on the Loan.

The Loan Agreement and Note provide for customary events of default. The Registrant expects to market the aircraft it has owned since 2000 for sale after completion of the refurbishment of both the Aircraft and the older aircraft.

The foregoing is a summary of the material terms and conditions of the Loan Agreement and the Note and is not a complete discussion of such documents.  Accordingly, the foregoing is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full texts of the Loan Agreement and the Note, copies of which are filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and reference is made to such agreements, which are hereby incorporated by reference.

An affiliate of RBS is a member of the syndicate of lenders in the Registrant's $200 million revolving credit facility. There are currently no borrowings under that facility. In addition, affiliates of RBS have provided and may in the future provide, commercial banking, trust and other financial services to the Registrant in the ordinary course of business for customary fees.

The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date the statement was made. Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, some of which cannot be predicted or quantified.
