WWE Possibly Using A 'Free' WrestleMania XXX To Boost Sign-ups For The WWE Network

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

We noted before that people within WWE are under the impression that the WWE Network will finally launch before WrestleMania XXX. Very few people internally are aware of any details past the point that WWE is shooting a lot of footage for the Network but nobody has been told when it would be airing.

One source notes that WrestleMania XXX is strongly being talked about as a way to lure people to sign up for the Network, with the idea that they can get a huge amount of sign-ups immediately if people realize they can get WrestleMania in HD for "free" by signing up for a $9.95 per month program that comes with a lot more WWE content.

The hope is if fans sign up, most won't cancel, will like what content is offered including the monthly PPV "for free," and it won't be a slow growth but an instant hit.
