Update on The Network’s Launch, Heath Slater Finally Wins a Match, More

– WWE Champion CM Punk is not advertised for Saturday’s pre-Royal Rumble WWE Supershow in Evansville, Indiana. Punk had previously been expected to appear at the UFC on FOX show that night with fighter Chael Sonnen. The updated main events for Saturday’s Supershow is John Cena vs. Kane and Mark Henry vs. Big Show vs. Daniel Bryan for the World Heavyweight Title.

– After defeating Trent Baretta on today’s WWE NXT, Heath Slater ended his 22 match losing streak – counting WWE TV and Superstars/NXT matches. Slater’s last victory also came over Trent Baretta – on the July 28th, 2011 WWE Superstars.

– At last word, WWE is planning to launch the Network around November of this year. Of course that could change and most likely will. The next set of commercials for the Network is scheduled to air around WrestleMania 28.

    If they plan to air the new Network in November They should have put the ads for it to be late 2012 or even 2013 for that matter!!! vince you are a moron!!!

    If the did a weekly show like First Take or No Huddle featuring Joey Styles, Jim Ross and the Legends and allowed them to comment truthfully without Creative getting involved that would make me watch it but since they consider themselves more Entertainment than Sport we can agree it won’t happen

    i think that if slater was given the right angle, he would do ok. He kind of reminds me of a very young edge.

    They should have a show where viewers get to call in and tell WWE Creative how *uncreative* they really are.
