AS I SEE IT: The Rocky Debut of the WWE Network
Pro Wrestling: Between the Sheets
This past week saw the somewhat rocky debut of the WWE Network, and the set-up show for the Road to Wrestlemania.
The major problems with the WWE Network break down as follows:
Major League Baseball Advanced Media’s (the company WWE is working with to handle the Network) had an inability in the first few days to handle the load of signups. Many people attempted to sign up and were unable to do so because of bandwidth and other issues.
MLBAM stated that the Network demand for sign-ups “exceeded anything we have seen in 14 years of doing e-commerce.” If that had been the only problem, and it had only been a problem at the beginning, that would have been a GOOD problem in some ways; because it would have shown a major demand for the service (which it did).
