The latest survey explains that WWE are considering adding a premium priced tier structure to the WWE Network.
Here are a list of programming ideas mentioned:
- WWE Superstar “Cribs”
- WWE-style “Apprentice” to win a job at WWE
- WWE Legends’ House Season 2- Attitude Era
- ‘TV-14 In-Ring Show: A “new” weekly version of ECW or other “edgy” new promotion rated TV-14
- House Shows: For the first time ever, get a live, ringside view of select WWE house shows
- New in-ring tournaments such as a Pro Am style tournament (WWE vs. NXT), a Lucha tournament, a tag team tournament, or King/Queen of the Ring tournaments
- Original Scripted Comedies: Comedies such as WWE Superstar Roasts, Southpaw Regional Wrestling or WWE’s version of The Office
- Original Scripted Dramas: Wrestling-themed series inspired by wrestling’s colorful and rich history such as a WWE version of Game of Thrones
The survey also asks if fans are interested in Ring of Honor, NJPW, Impact, ICW, Progress and “other regional Indie promotions.”
Other notable mentions include:
- Ability to download content and watch offline
- Set up a “movie theater mode” to watch virtually with friends or participate in a live event on Facebook where you can chat with other fans
- The ability to watch current or historic WWE content in a way that makes it seem as if you are actually sitting ringside and experiencing an event, such as ‘WrestleMania’ live and in person, using special computer generated effects and equipment like a headset
- The ability to watch WWE in-ring shows using alternate camera choices (e.g. gorilla cam, drone cam, Go-Pro camera), 360 views or select higher or lower resolution options
- Alternate Audio: Choose your favorite pay-per-view commentator team – for instance, you can hear “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Jerry Lawler call a live pay-per-view
A reminder that these are ideas given by the company for research and may not actually happen. It is nice to know that all of this has been considered, though.
