This seems like a relatively big deal and makes me wonder if Disney might be considering bidding on WWE TV once the deal comes due.

But, of course, they cite a bs number for the amount of wrestling fans. 65 million? Get lost.
It would definitely give ESPN a boost in ratings based off the tidbit I saw of Dave reporting that USA needs WWE to stay in the top 5 in cable ratings.

I'm interested on how the coverage of this will shake out. Do we get more bad articles like the SI GWE List and the old Shoemaker stuff or we finally get quality content from a mainstream outlet.

ROYAL RUMBLE 2017 POTENTIAL FURTHER SCOOP

The NBA and NHL don't have any games scheduled, nor are there any other events at all, for January 22 at the STAPLES Center.

Hate when HHH says this because it ruins my delusional idea that he's going to save the company when Vince dies

That's a shame, you'd think that HHH would understand that 50/50 booking helps no one.

I think 50/50 is too extreme but no one especially considering the schedule they work should be better than maybe 75% win percentage and that should be an anomaly. Top dog gets 65-70 percent and just cascade down. Majority of the card should be 50/50 or close to it and then the Heath Slaters are just spoilers getting fluke wins here and there.

Also 50-50's effect could be viewed as positive for WWE because it most stars they make jump ship and make someone else rich. Better to have a bunch of guys that and have people watch for the brand itself rather than any individual wrestler. Do you think they enjoy that a guy like Lesnar has bargaining leverage?

I haven't seen it been talked about a lot but the NBA are doing double headers on Monday Nights starting MLK Day for the rest of next season on TNT.

I think this might really hurt Raw ratings wise cause they will be coming off the heels of MNF and how they got killed during the NBA playoffs.

Its a shame that WWE just goes, "Oh this PPV is going to be great, why bother with the go home show?!"

Almost as bad as people complaining about that SS is "6 hours" long when no one is forcing you to watch the 2 hours of hype packages and under undercard matches

"Dee Moan King" stated 75 times in 15m.

They killed the demon dead in record time.
