For those that missed this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, the company had no shame in promoting the underperforming WWE Network. The promotion was forced and came off as desperate.
At one point, JBL held a hand-written $9.99 (the subscription price) note over the face of Michael Cole when talking up the Network (mind you this was in addition to the show's opening segment being dedicated to the promotion).
Here's a photo for the record:
Maybe it's just me but maybe people aren't buying the WWE Network because the people headlining SummerSlam -- John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar -- were nowhere to be seen (despite some video packages).
Cena wasn't there due to filming commitments for The Hive and Lesnar's part-time status leaves his dates limited.
WWE announced last week the WWE Network has 700,000 subscribers as of June 30, 2014. This number was only up 32,713 since April 7, 2014. Click here for a breakdown of the latest WWE Network subscription data.
