WWE’s Chief Financial Officer George Barrios gave a presentation at the Citi Global Consumer Conference in New York City on Wednesday. After the presentation, Barrios was asked about programming for the forthcoming WWE Network.
Barrios said the WWE Network will center around the company’s monthly pay-per-views. They’ll be creating retrospective content from their library such as a series they’ve already done called Monday Night War. The series takes a look back at WWE Monday Night Raw and WCW Nitro when Vince McMahon and Ted Turner were doing battle each week. The series is 15 episodes long.
He also pointed to the upcoming “Total Divas” reality series on E! and highlighted how WWE has the ability to create their own original programming. The content of the WWE Network will be a different flavor than Raw and Smackdown, which both serve as anchors for the company’s programming.
The network will give the viewers more for less than what they are already paying with the $45 or $55 monthly pay-per-views.
