World Wrestling Entertainment has added to its massive video library according to PWInsider, as it’s being reported the company agreed to a deal with Puerto Rico’s World Wrestling Council last month.
For those unfamiliar with WWC, the promotion is owned by WWE Hall Of Famer Carlos Colon, the father of former WWE Superstar Carlito and current WWE Superstar Primo Colon, as well as the uncle of Primo’s tag team partner, Epico. The library that goes back as far as 1983 features a number of names the WWE Universe is familiar with including ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage, ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, The Legion Of Doom among many others and of course infamous, bloody brawls between Bruiser Brody and Abdullah The Butcher. This comes on the heels of talk that the company could be rolling out a new tiered system for the WWE Network where subscribers could pay extra for additional content.
PWInsider also notes that some of the footage has been damaged after Hurricane Maria last Fall, which might affect how quickly the company can begin to get some of it out. However, the process has begun as it’s also said the footage has already been sent to Stamford, although there’s no word on when it will be available for streaming.
EA’s Take: So the tiered Network system is certainly coming sooner rather than later. I’m interested to see how they figure all of that out. Unless I have to pay a little extra for pay-per-views, I can’t see me chipping in even an extra couple of bucks a month for things like WWC or the rumors UK promotions that could be part of it. There’s already more than I can consume as it is!
