WWE Tapes Prospective Network Footage At Full Sail University; Troubling Sign Regarding The WWE Network

Shares 0

- WWE filmed material for two prospective WWE Network shows at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida earlier this month. The first shows taped were one-hour shows highlighting Florida Championship Wrestling workers. The company also taped a half-hour special on Sheamus & Daniel Bryan beating Cody Rhodes & Drew McIntyre. While the first shows were centered around highlighting the developmental process, the second show focuses on a specific match. All material taped was pilot footage, meaning it may or may not be used.

- Speaking of the WWE Network, WWE is currently running a Monster.com job listing, searching for a Vice President of Digital and Social Media to help launch the network. The problem is - WWE hides the fact they are behind the job listing. Below is an excerpt:

    wwe is hiding that they are behind the job listing because they don't want to lose out on intelligent candidates who would never apply for the job if they knew it was working in the "pro rassling " industry.

    There are a few companies that advertise in this way, especially for high level job openings. As was the case with some other companies, they seem to believe that not disclosing their company name, that it keeps candidates honest while having the most flexibility with potential salary offers.
