WWE Network, Unused Talent, Bret Hart, FCW Contracts

Written by Richard Gray on Apr 13, 2010 - 10:35:11 AM

What do you know about the supposed WWE cable network?

Vince McMahon wants to start his own basic-tier cable network. As far as I know they want to feature entertainment programming and not all wrestling. WWE wants to leave Raw on the USA Network and now Smackdown on SyFy. McMahon is good friends with NBC Universal Chairman Dick Ebersol and there's been talk of Ebersol and the brass at NBC Universal teaming with WWE to launch the network. This is something McMahon has wanted to do for years but it is now getting much closer to becoming a reality.

Okay, Raw now has a huge roster with the fall of ECW. But why don't they use everyone? Raw continuously uses the same guys over and over again and forget about Chris Masters, Zack Ryder, Vladimir Kozlov, etc. Where did they go?

Chris Masters has been working house shows on this most recent overseas tour. Zack Ryder worked a tag match with Chavo Guerrero against Evan Bourne and Yoshi Tatsu on last week's edition of WWE Superstars and Vladimir Kozlov is still under WWE contract. The reason why these workers do not often appear on Raw is because there is nothing for them creatively.

How much longer does Bret Hart have with WWE? It was said that his contract would be over following Wrestlemania; yet, he's still showing up on Raw.

Bret Hart's short-term deal with WWE is up after this overseas tour with the company.

How much do FCW wrestlers earn? I know a lot of indy promotions hardly pay their wrestler's, if they do at all, but FCW is operated under WWE.

The downside guarantee (money you are guaranteed to make while under contract) for a developmental contract in WWE is $25,000. That was the number as of a couple of years ago and I haven't heard of it changing.
