WHY WWE IS MAKING A BIG PART OF THE NETWORK FREE, TAKEOVER DUBLIN, ICE CREAM BARS AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2020-03-26 10:00:00

Why is WWE giving away the Network when there are people paying for it?

They are not giving away the Network.  What WWE did, and should be commended for, is opened up a big portion of the Network's archives for free to those who want to access it.  We are told it's only for a short period of time and was done to give those who are social distancing and being responsible during the pandemic something more they can do to pass the time.  For those of us who are paying for the Network, I look at it like this, we are helping WWE to financially cover assisting those who might not be able to afford the Network during a horrible time.

Do you think NXT Dublin takes place as scheduled?

No, they announced this morning it has been pushed back to October.

Whatever happened to the WWE Ice Cream bars coming back?

They are still coming.  The official announcement and launch was to begin coming out of Wrestlemania 36 weekend.  Some stores have stocked them in the past few weeks and there will be a bigger rollout in the weeks to come.

Why isn't AEW just taping their content?

We are told that Tony Khan feels its important to have live content weekly for their fans during this time and intends for the company to produce that as long as they can.

Will the pandemic have any change on the rollout for AEW action figures?

It is possible, but we have been told they don't expect there to be a delay and the figures will be released this summer.
