Today WWE marks a shift into the future of Sports Entertainment as WWE presents the new start to World Wrestling Entertainment.
July 15th, 2009- WWE Press Release
~New changes have been made effective August 9th~
After a rough time financially in the start of 2009, a new era will bring changes from the mind of Vince McMahon himself. As all of us start this new journey.
WWE is owner of Raw, ECW, and Smackdown brands, but as of today only two will live on in the glory. ECW will no longer be a brand, leaving Raw and Smackdown to run the company.
Going from 3 brands to 2 will leave a lot of workers without work. By cutting staff the WWE hopes the company will be stronger and richer.
Shift in TV Programming
Now that ECW is out, WWE will also drop the show Superstars, but plans to have Saturday Night Main Events throughout the year.
Also with the shift in TV Programming means the shift in Pay Per Views. For now on only one Pay Per View will be hosted a month as listed as follow:
January: Royal Rumble
February: No Way Out
May: Judgment Day
June: Extreme Rules
July: The Bash
October: Cyber Sunday
November: Survivor Series
The switch in the number of Pay Per Views brings hope that more people will be willing to buy Pay Per Views.
With the changes happening in the WWE as the new era begins, the only fair thing to do is make all championships vacant to start out this new journey.
The following are titles not returning and also titles that will return to Raw.
WWE Tag Team Championship
World Tag Team Championship
Championships that will return to Raw now:
Championships that will return to Smackdown now:
World Heavyweight Championship
United States Championship
Change 5: A New GM
Two new GM’s will be announced and will take over for Raw and Smackdown.
The new and improved WWE might be a smaller company, but World Wrestling Entertainment is ready to make the shift into your TV sets.
Stay tuned for further information.
