"Clearly we need to quickly re-evaluate the economics and viability of their business with us, as it now appears the WWE feels they do not need their PPV distributors," DirecTV said in a statement. They also noted that the audience for WWE pay-per-views "has been steadily declining, and this new low-cost competitive offering will only accelerate this trend."
A WWE spokesperson issued a response to DirecTV's statement, saying, "to the contrary, WWE hopes to continue to be in business with our pay-per-view distributors, ultimately giving our fans the choice between the two offerings."
- After being on hiatus over the holidays, the return of WWE Main Event on ION this past Wednesday averaged 1.520 million viewers. It was the highest viewership for the show in months.
