Source: JR's BBQWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new in-depth blog on jrsbarbq.com with thoughts on the WWE Network. Here are a few highlights:
Tonight's announcement: "Big day for WWE fans and those that earn a living within WWE. The long awaited announcement regarding the new, WWE Network is set for later today in Las Vegas. This will be a critical day in WWE history, one way or another. More to come after this...."
What will make it a success: "One major key to the success of this Network is the development of NEW programming as it cannot be only about the old, tape libraries. I can see live, interactive programming being produced on a daily basis which, if true, then it provides several talents with opportunities to contribute to the brand and the network."
PPVs airing on the Network: "The other key to the network's success is the airing of ALL the PPV's live. Right now, WrestleMania is the most, 'must see' PPV in WWE and some might argue it is the only "must see' PPV in WWE. That point is arguable and is dependent upon the attraction.
"Being able to see WWE PPV's, original programming that's exclusive to the network, and the organized and systematic airing of the episodically produced, wrestling territory shows are among the elements that it will necessitate to make the WWE Network a hit."
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on if WWE and TNA will get a bump in their rights fees and much more about the Network. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
