Wrestling To Have Its Own Channel Next Year
Year in and year out, wrestling has remained one of the top attractions of cable TV -- if not the top attraction. And during a commercial break on WWE Raw SuperShow Monday night the Vince McMahon outfit aired a one-minute commercial for the WWE Network, presumably a wrestling-all-the-time cable channel. "It's on its way in 2012," the commercial said, without giving a precise date or further details. On its website, the WWE blared, "Something big is coming to WWE that will change not just the squared circle, but all of entertainment." Neither the commercial nor the website provided details about the planned programming of the channel, other than to say it will represent "a brand new day for watching the greatest matches, moments and Superstars in sports-entertainment history."
