The Stamford Advocate is featuring an article on the planned WWE Network launch this year and references the negative New York Post article claiming the company has yet to secure any cable or satellite outlets. WWE’s Chief Marketing Officer Michelle Wilson had the following to say.
“There will be a WWE network in some shape or form. We are in late-stage negotiations with distributors. We’ve filled 30 positions so far specifically for the network. They come with cable experience at ESPN, Viacom, Discovery and Warner Brothers TV. They just got done shooting a reality show, `Legends House,’ where eight of our superstar legends live together in a house in Palm Springs, Calif. Another reality show will feature our WWE divas. We did a lot of research on what our fans want to see. We’re developing new shows taking advantage of our amazing library. “This is an all-WWE initiative — fully. It’s going to be a game changer.”
