Sources in WWE report that WWE will be pushing the Network debut back until the Fall of 2012.

The delay comes because WWE won’t have the infrastructure needed in place by April 1st when they wanted to launch with WrestleMania.

Officials didn’t want to push the debut back but they had to for the long term success of the Network.

Despite the delay, projects that were being produced will still go on as planned.

    How much extra will it cost?

    I would guess between $7-10.

    I think this network might not happen, they're also fearing it flopping. I read somewhere that the feedback wasn't all that great for the network.

    They don't even have their heirachy set up for management, and they don't even know what programming to put on the network (even with hundreds of thousands of hours of wrestling programming).

    they 🤬 up with all the original programming they want to produce. they should have had an idea of at least 8 different original shows to produce before even announcing the network. Legends House.......?

    All they have to fall back on is the libraries they've acquired, the 1 original show (Legends House), and their own produced movies, which we all know were all failures. If they could spare the change, go after the licenses of movies that had a wrestler in them like, The Princess Bride, No Holds Barred, one of those Critter movies where Undertaker was in it, 🤬 like that, just to fill out their movie roster. But that's going to cost the network some $$ just to obtain the license.

    They backed themselves into a corner by announcing the network before they even had a blueprint. The best thing they can do is hold their head up and back away until they figure out what the hell it is they want to accomplish and how they're going to go about putting together new programs.

    They should have a bio series, where they do bios on wrestlers and the companies (WWE, WCW, ECW)

    They should also showcase Superstars and NXT. Also add in TE.

    Maybe also do some "a day in the life of..."

    Do some backstage 🤬 ; interviews after matches, set up/clean up, prepping etc ..

    Whoever remembers the mania of wrestlemania documentary they did around 2004. Well they need to do more stuff like that.

    I still have WWE Classics, they should just keep that along with the network and charge one price for both. Like if you're subscribed to HBO u get HBO On Demand for free. They may start the network off with lots of classic events but as the original programming builds it'll just be re-runs of those shows and maybe a couple events or classic episodes a day.

    I read it would be included in a sports entertainment package. I've got Comcast and have their Sports Entertainment package for NFL Red Zone and it includes 2 soccer channels, ESPN Classic, like 4 Fox College Sports channels, and a few more sports channels I never watch. It's $8 a month, the same price WWE Classics on Demand is.

    The problem is that the people who are working on the wrestling shows are in charge of running network. They already burnt out doing the wrestling shows. They forced Vince's hand in at least putting out "legends house." My thing is, why put out a network full of old matches when you can easily watch them on youtube or buy them on Demand.

    You'll probably just have it day one and no additional charge.
