WWE Signs Five-Year UK TV Deal, Upcoming NXT Live Event Matches, Justin Credible Speaks

– In the audio below, Justin Credible talks with Steve & The Scum of WGD Weekly about the current state of pro wrestling, TNA, WWE, Vince McMahon and lots more:

– Tyler Breeze vs. Corey Graves has been announced for the February 15th WWE NXT live event in Orlando, Florida. Bo Dallas vs. Adrian Neville has been announced for the February 22nd NXT live event in Jacksonville, Florida.

– WWE has signed a new five-year TV deal with BSkyB in the UK for a major rights fees increase. The new deal includes all weekly WWE TV shows including the debut of Main Event in the market. The main difference is that all 12 WWE pay-per-views will air as pay-per-view shows. In the past, Sky has aired several WWE pay-per-views as stand-alone live TV specials.

    I cant see many people paying £15 for the bog standard ppvs like Battleground etc, with Sky Sports being expensive enough, having to stay up till 4am to watch it, the rise of pubs showing it and of course the Network coming here next year I think they will be flogging a dead horse

    Its good that it stays with Sky but what about the Network since they’ve signed a 5 year deal including PPV’s?
