Not so fast? Things are a bit crazy in the wrestling world at the moment and that might be the case for a long time to come. There are still going to be wrestling shows in one form or another, but that does not mean they are going to be what you are used to seeing. At the same time, things may be changing in how you can watch pay per views, but it might not be for a little while longer.

In February, a story made the rounds about WWE attempting to sell their pay per view rights to a streaming platform. While no platform was ever named, various services such as Peacock and ESPN+ were mentioned. There were various questions still to be answered about such a move, but the move was sounding likely. It has not happened yet, but now we have an update.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, negotiations are still ongoing between WWE and the various possible partners. It is not clear when any deal could be made or which platform could be making a deal with WWE. The deal will not include this year’s WrestleMania 36, which has been announced for the WWE Network and is currently scheduled for April 5.

There are a lot of good things about what WWE is currently doing. Check out some of the best of the WWE Network:

Opinion: I’m still skeptical about this whole situation, mainly as it is not clear how much more money this is going to cost the wrestling fans. There is a good chance that instead of getting the pay per views for the same price we do now, we would have to buy another service or the pay per views as special shows. That does not bode well for fans, but WWE would certainly benefit.

Do you think this deal will take place? Where do you want the shows to air? Let us know in the comments below.
