STAMFORD, Conn., May 21 (UPI) -- Vince McMahon is no longer a billionare, according to Forbes.

The 68-year-old professional wrestling promoter reportedly lost an estimated $350 million when World Wrestling Entertainment's shares dropped 49 percent in premarket trading on Friday.

The stock's tumble came a day after the company announced it had landed a new television deal with Comcast Corp.'s NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.

The WWE is attempting to get 1 million subscribers for its network before the end of the year as the company strives to make up for lost business in pay-per-view and video on demand.
