In my own opinion, if you’re a wrestling fan and don’t subscribe to the WWE Network, I’m not sure what exactly you’re waiting for. While the Network is obviously loaded with WWE content, it also boasts a huge selection of classic WCW, ECW, Mid-South, NWA and a host of other programming, making it a must-have for the price.
There’s been a lot of rumor and speculation regarding other companies possibly bringing content to the WWE Network, one of the most talked about over the past couple of years being the United Kingdom’s Progress Wrestling and Insane Championship Wrestling. Progress is based out of London, England and has been the home of stars such as Mark Andrews, Marty Scurll, El Ligero and Pete Dunne among others. ICW is a Glasgow, Scotland based promotion which has housed the likes of Nikki Cross, Danny Burch, Jack Gallagher and Finn Balor to name a few.
According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE may have reached an agreement with both promotions to air some of their programming on the WWE Network. At this time, nothing has been confirmed, however it’s believed an announcement could come during the United Kingdom Championship Tournament in London on June 18th and 19th.
EA’s Take: This is all pure speculation right now, but I know it has definitely been talked about for some time. WWE has sent out emails in the past to poll their subscribers on what they’d like to see on the Network, including both ICW and Progress. While I never want to pay more than what I am, that’s also been discussed, as well as possibly pricing tiers for viewers that want content like this. All I have to say is, “Take my money”.
