WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross discusses the upcoming WWE Network in his latest blog post on JRsBarBQ.com. When talking about the possibility of the WWE Network launching in early 2014, Ross agrees with the rumor, saying that the WWE would be stupid to not capitalize on launching during WrestleMania season.
“Excited to read all the rumors regarding the long awaited WWE Network which looks as if it will launch in 2014. It only makes sense to launch the network during WrestleMania season and take advantage of all the media opportunities to sell/promote both the network and WM30.
If that philosophy is accurate, that would have the Network launching in February or March. All that is TBD but it’s been an exhaustive, expensive work in progress for many individuals for a long, long time.
If WWE’s PPV’s all move to the Network then the chances of this entity becoming a significant success early increase greatly.”
Ross also comments on his future, saying,
“Contrary to what I’ve read on Twitter, I’m NOT doing a ‘shoot’ interview with anyone…..and I’m STILL NOT buying TNA nor would I ever want to affect the team of Mike Tenay and Taz. They have great chemistry and as I have said before they do a great job with what is provided them on their monitor.
This retirement ‘gimmick’ ain’t half bad.”
