Wrong. Wrong! The WWE wants NEW talent, like rumored sitcoms with Santino Marella, or "Legends House" featuring stars like Roddy Piper, Jim Duggan, The Iron Sheik and others living in a house together (although this has also been slated to drop on SyFy). Which can be cool but who wants to watch that all the time? There's talk of showing some of the "B" pay-per-views (Money In The Bank, Over The Limit, etc.) For free for those who subscribe...
Subscriptions has been the point of contention for the longest. The word was WWE wanted their Network to function like the channels the NBA, NFL and other sports organizations have. That'd be assuming they'd get their own channel. They tried buying G4 out to no avail, and can't get anything that's already in existence. The latest has been talk of doing an HBO-type subscription service. The question, as always, is "how much?", which we've got no response on, yet.
The other thing is, commercials for this channel went out early 2012, with the first rumored launch date being the day of WrestleMania this year. That's come and gone. The plan is apparently still for this to drop by year's end. No set date, no ideal plan, and no progress in terms of content. And fans like me wondering what this will be and how it will be presented.
How much would you pay for classic pro wrestling shows, at least 8 PPVs, new wrestling-oriented programming and potentially more? Would you want to subscribe to an HBO-like channel for pro wrestling? I would, but who the hell am I? Do you think this would work? Place some thoughts in the comments. Maybe we can take this to Vince.
