For very many wrestling fans and the WWE Universe it's not hard to figure out that this announcement is going to be the details of the anticipated launch of the WWE Network. Many have speculated on pricing and content for the new WWE Network, but this press conference should give us all some of that information and hopefully a launch date as well. Over the last decade plus WWE has bought the wrestling libraries of many promotions, including WCW, AWA, WCCW, Mid-South, ECW, Smokey Mountain Wrestling and more. If you include all of the content that WWE itself has archived over there now 50 plus year history the WWE Network will be the greatest accumulation of wrestling history the world has to offer.

WWE pay-per-view events are slated to be part of the WWE Network, so if members of the WWE Universe subscribe they will be able to enjoy all of them going forward, possibly starting with 'WrestleMania' 30 in April. All of the past episodes of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown plus older shows like Wrestling Challenge, Sunday Night Heat and more should also be available. Fans can go back and relive the "Monday Night Wars" between WWE and WCW with past episodes of Nitro being available to watch as well.

Wrestling fans have been anticipating the launch of the WWE Network since it was originally slated for some time late in 2012/early 2013. Now the WWE Universe will be able to wax nostalgic again for all of the content they watched as they grew up with the WWE brand, but also a major portion of the history of wrestling.
