The following announcement was issued by WWE today:
We’ve had a great run WWE Universe … but all good things must come to an end.
I’m writing to you all today to let you all know that WWEUniverse.com will be closing its doors this Saturday, Jan. 1, 2011.
While the site is going away, some of the site’s most popular features will live on:
* The popular Monday Night Raw and pay-per-view Live Chats, hosted by WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel, will move to a new location on WWE.com’s main site (WWE.com/social/livechat).
* Finkel’s weekly blogs, as well as The Ross Report from Hall of Famer Jim Ross, will move to their Facebook pages.
* Our make-your-own-highlight-reel video creation factory known as “Smash-Ups” will be added to WWE.com in the near future.
While the site is going away, the WWE Universe will continue to live online. Please consider joining us on our popular outposts on the following social networks:
* Twitter: twitter.com/WWE
* Facebook: Facebook.com/WWE
* YouTube: YouTube.com/WWE
Our WWE Universe Twitter account, @WWEUniverse, will continue to provide answers to your fan questions, re-tweeting the best comments from our followers, Superstars and Divas, and provide live coverage and pictures from select WWE events.
In parting, I just want to say thank you to all the dedicated long-time members of this site that participated, contributed photos, blog posts, and comments in the Forums.
WWE appreciates your support over the past two years, and I hope you enjoyed your time on the site.
Thank you all for supporting WWEUniverse.com. We’ll see you on Facebook and Twitter.
