Source: JR's BBQJim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
WWE Network number:
"I'm still of the belief that, in time, the WWE Network will be a good investment for WWE but it likely will continue to evolve for the next 2-3 years as it relates to garnering a consistent number of subscribers and how the Network will be accepted and subsequently grow outside North America. By lowering the company's overhead, cutting the fat, so to speak, WWE will have more realistic numbers in place that will positively affect the Network's financial impact on the company.
"My observations of the Network are that the younger fans want new programming to compliment what they are currently watching on WWE TV while many displaced fans, if they can be located in a reasonable, marketing manner, likely are going to like the content from the vault or programming that relates to the past the best. In other words, WWE has two, distinctly different audiences to market the network to and that cannot be done exclusively within WWE programming."
Last night's Impact Wrestling:
"Nice job by TNA Impact Wrestling Thursday night who kept the majority of their product in front of an enthusiastic, new audience in NYC and TNA turned their dogs loose to do what the TNA roster is best suited to do and that is to WRESTLE and provide physicality. I'd have to be strongly sold at why some TBA promos are done which is not to say that I am anti promo. I like the work ethic and passion in the TNA locker room and the brand's success starts and ends there."
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including ideas on promoting the Network, cost cutting in WWE, being with the company during the cost cutting in the '90s, recruiting talent and much more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
