WWE PREPPING INDEPENDENT WRESTLING CONTENT FOR WWE NETWORK

By Mike Johnson on 2020-07-30 14:08:00

While it appears plans for a multi-tiered WWE Network have been paused, perhaps forever, after WWE was initially slated to launch that project several months ago, PWInsider.com can confirm that independent wrestling content is still scheduled to be utilized on the company's streaming network.

Several sources have stated that content involving several promotions is being planned for rollout on the Network.  WWE has the rights to Great Britain's PROGRESS and ICW and recently purchased the EVOLVE and Dragon Gate USA libraries from World Wrestling Network.  The company also has a strong working relationship with Germany's Westside Xtreme Wrestling, so one would think those libraries are the most likely to be involved.

There is no timetable for when the content will be released, but we can confirm there was work being done in recent weeks to prepare for its incorporation onto the Network, unless of course, there is another change in plans.
