With people worldwide confined to homes, the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has announced a limited period free access to its digital library. The online content, including, Raw, Smackdown, and WrestleMania, can now be accessed for on fee at the WWE Network for one month.
“This unprecedented offering to WWE fans worldwide includes each epic instalment to date of WrestleMania, plus, every Royal Rumble, SummerSlam and Survivor Series event; every NXT TakeOver and NXT UK TakeOver; and ground breaking originals such as the entire WWE 24 docuseries, Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions interview show, the recent five-episode hit, WWE Ruthless Aggression, and its 20-episode predecessor, The Monday Night War series,” WWE has stated in a Press release.
The offering will include latest episodes of Raw and Smackdown as well as the original series like WWE Untold and A Future WWE: The FCW Story.
There has been no clarity on the Live programming like the monthly pay per views.
Fans can access the WWE Network content by signing up on WWE.com.
The move aims at providing fans with content during the global Covid-19 pandemic in the virtual absence of any live sports on television.
The National Football League, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League and Major League Baseball have already made similar moves.
The WWE is also seeing it as an opportunity to increase its global fan base as the numbers of the wrestling entertainment business paid subscribers had reportedly dropped by 10% to 1.42 million.
