As we moved into the second full week of January the world of professional wrestling/sports entertainment was abuzz with the news of the launch of the WWE Network on February 24, following Monday Night Raw. This will be the first live streaming 24/7 network with so much content at launch and even more to be added over time.
On Wednesday night at 930pm the groundbreaking announcement by WWE at CES as expected was the launch of the WWE Network. The content of the network will include new programming, such as "Legends House" and "The Monday Night War" plus all past episodes of Raw, Smackdown and all WWE, WCW and ECW pay-per-views as well. There will be a "vault" section as well for those who want to delve into the history of not only WWE, but WCW, ECW, AWA, World Class (WCCW) and more. For about $10 per month with a six month commitment that also include all 12 WWE pay-per-views starting with 'WrestleMania' 30 it seems like a deal to good to be true and something the WWE Universe should, and will, invest in.
Also in WWE we got one more match added to the 'Royal Rumble' pay-per-view as the Big Show will battle Brock Lesnar. Meanwhile in TNA they have "unified" there two championships into one as Magnus defeated AJ Styles to become the one and only champion in TNA. Now they move on to 'Genesis' this Thursday night on Impact with five matches made for the event. Besides Kurt Angle versus Bobby Roode in a steel cage and Sting versus Ethan Carter III, they have added a Knockout Championship match between Gail Kim and Madison Rayne. Also, Bully Ray will battle Mr. Anderson and "Cowboy" James Storm will square off with his former tag-team partner Gunner for his TNA World title briefcase earned during "Feast or Fired."
Lastly, we want to mention that there seems to be no new information on the condition of the 90 year old Hall of Famer Mae Young, who was taken off of life support on Wednesday and inadvertently reported to have passed. She is still with us, but gravely ill, and was told by a close friend that many people were pulling for her. We here at WorldWrestling101 are among those wishing her well.
