Re: What did you expect the WWE network was gonna be?
I didn't imagine it'd be a burden on the company the way it is. I thought it was going to launch and be such a no-brainer, they'd have close to a million subs by the summer. It was surprising to me how many people didn't have it during WM30 weekend earlier this year in New Orleans. I'm sitting in the area waiting for HOF to start and I'm watching the pre-show on my phone. Several people ask me how the Network is and say how they haven't "gotten around to it" yet.
While I enjoy the Network, it's easy to see the effect it's had on the product. I wouldn't say it's entirely negative, but I do miss the individual PPV sets and different colored ropes. I thought we'd get the same PPV quality just for $9.99 now. Which in hindsight doesn't make financial sense (lol), so I see the reason for a slight cutback.
Still, that's what I imagined. I also thought it'd be a place for next-day RAW and SD -- an all inclusive hub of WWE programming. I was planning on dropping cable for good just for WWE Network, but that isn't the case.
In terms of the library, I didn't have many expectations. I knew having every episode of RAW and Nitro up was gonna take a minute, so that's okay.
