It’s another direction. The WWE Network has become one of the most important parts of the wrestling landscape as it offers all kinds of options for wrestling fans. For about ten dollars a month, fans are able to see almost all of the content that you could realistically watch. There needs to be something else though and now WWE is trying a bit of a new direction.
In addition to all of the archived wrestling on the WWE Network, there is also quite a bit of new and first run content. This is going to be necessary to keep fans coming back, as eventually you are going to get through everything from the vault. NXT and live pay per views have been the primary sources of such new content, but WWE is doing something a little different.
WWE has announced that a new documentary called Heaven will premiere on the WWE Network on March 7. The film tells the story of Heaven Fitch, the first female to win a male state wrestling championship in North Carolina. Beth Phoenix will narrate the documentary and Stephanie McMahon will provide the film’s introduction. This is one of the first times WWE has branched out from professional wrestling to look at amateur wrestling.
This sounds great. Check out the trailer for the film:
Opinion: Cool. This is the kind of thing that might draw in more of an audience because fans of amateur wrestling might want to see the film. If nothing else, it offers a bit of a break from the same kind of thing over and over again and that is a good idea. There is so much out there to look at and there is no reason to limit yourselves to the same thing over and over.
