One Idea Vince Has for the WWE Network, Running Twitter Joke Backstage, More

– Vince McMahon is looking to brand the WWE Network with something along the lines of “The Most Interactive Network on TV.” The idea is to have programming that keeps people in front of their computers, phones and other devices giving feedback. It was described by a source that Vince has an idea of making the network into a “constant Cyber Sunday” where fans can vote on various things.

– There’s a running joke going around WWE that having good matches, good interviews or getting over with the fans doesn’t matter if you’re a new guy because the way to get a push is to be entertaining on Twitter and hope Vince hears about it.

– On a related note, Vince reportedly is wanting certain Superstars to change their Twitter usernames. Dolph Ziggler’s name was mentioned because his name is @HEELZiggler and heel is apparently one of the terms Vince doesn’t want there.

    Unless Vince plans on loading up this new network with ‘wrestling’, it’s just another number on the channel listing.

    I’m all for great promos. They help generate interest and sell the product. But, they are NOT the product. I honestly believe that there are people within WWE that have lobbied the idea of doing an entire show without a single match or even a ring.

    @ RPM.

    Yeah I noticed that on Raw. I don’t see how that was a good idea in someone’s mind. Next you’ll have Cena with a new shirt that says “Most Hated FACE in WWE”

    Good thing Foley isn’t on commentary, because Vince would have been yelling in his ear.

    What? Michael Cole has mentioned DZ’s twitter name several times on commentary! Who tells Cole what to say on commentary?

    even though they let him have HEEL on his trunks…
