Update on WWE Network’s Benoit Disclaimer, WWE Edits ROH Story for Punk?, Network Launch

– There’s a feeling that the recent Ring of Honor article on may have been edited to reflect CM Punk being gone. The impression given was that the original piece was a lot more Punk-heavy.

– While the official WWE Network launch will happen on February 24th right when RAW goes off the air that night, fans will actually be able to start signing up, logging in and viewing content that morning at 9am EST.

– We’ve noted before that a disclaimer will appear before any Chris Benoit match on the WWE Network. The disclaimer will likely just say something about how these are sports entertainment characters and won’t directly mention the Benoit family tragedy.

    I agree, I think a healing period was in order.

    I felt the same way but I think they just probably didn’t want to put off any viewers you know? Now I think they’re thinking that since they have streaming on their network they can have Benoit footage streamed to those who choose to see. Somebody here said to give it time.

    Which is how it should have been from the start. Recognize him for his ring work, and not his life and his awful final actions.
