Purpose of the WrestleMania XXX Pre-Show Being Two Hours Has Been Revealed

WM XXX

In a new report from PWInsider.com, the purpose of the WrestleMania XXX Pre-Show being two hours has been revealed. According to the report, WWE is running the pre-show “super long” as a strategic maneuver that they hope will encourage more people to subscribe for the WWE Network.

As we previously reported, the beginning of the WrestleMania XXX Pre-Show will air from 5-6 p.m.ET on WWE.com (Youtube, Yahoo, etc.) just as normal. However, the second portion of the program will air exclusively on the WWE Network from 6-7 p.m.

The company’s hope is that viewers will watch the first hour, and become intrigued with what is being offered during the second hour. Then, they will sign-up for the WWE Network, which locks each subscriber into a six-month commitment, in order to watch the rest of the program and WrestleMania itself.

    What about countries where the network isn’t available?? They just get screwed…. I’d love yo have the network already but punishing me because I can’t buy the network sucks.

    Dumb idea. Stop trying that network down our throats for Christ sake

  • Pissed off

    Therefore alienating the UK who do not have the network available to is. Thanks WWE here’s for looking after your fans… Not!

  • Nostalgicfool

    • annoyed

      Well excuse those that are not as tech savvy as you. You must just be the envy of your entire country.

    Yikes I thought having to tolerate 5 hours of wrestling was much now we are up to 6 hours and the venue opens 90 minutes before the pre show is just too much for any person. Compared to any other sport a major event can go 4 to 5 hours top.

    This gets to the point that this is way too much show.

    Well thats not really fair on the countries that have yet to gain access to the wwe network
