WWE Planning a RAW Pre-Show, WWE Network Update, NXT/Superstars, More

– Below are some highlights from Vince McMahon’s conference call with WWE investors on Thursday morning:

* WWE Studios took a $3.3 million loss on That’s What I Am but are still confident in their movie division and will continue rolling new titles out.

* WWE is moving forward with plans for a live, arena-based show to air at 8pm EST on Monday nights going into RAW at 9pm. No word yet if it will air on the USA Network or not.

* WWE is looking at getting either NXT, Superstars or both back on a TV network before the end of this year.

* Regarding the WWE cable network, the company has meetings with more potential distributors in the next few weeks. WWE is still on track for the previously announced projected launch in 12-18 months from the first of the year. Vince McMahon is confident that the network will be a success.

* Vince revealed that UFC recently failed in negotiations for a network with NBC and thinks WWE has much more to offer in a network.

    i think maybe a ufc network could be succesful

    I said it before, but WWE should condense a classic Raw from that week(ex: If it’s the week of 4th of July, they use an old Raw from 4th of July) & maybe have Michael Cole or something explain the storylines for the show. It would kinda be like an hour long “This Week in WWE History”, except it would be for Raw.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing NXT on tv again. I liked season 1 and 2. If NXT does return to tv, I want to see different wrestlers on there, not a bunch of guys who lost already.
