After WWE CEO Vince McMahon and interim CFO Frank Riddick divulged plans to shop WWE content to other “major” streaming services outside of the WWE Network on their 2019 Q4 earnings conference call this past week, many were wondering if that would mean a move to once again charging top dollar for their monthly PPVs instead of the $9.99 a month that fans had become accustomed to the last six years.
So, if a move happens, and McMahon made it sound like it’s almost inevitable as he said they could announce a deal as early as the first quarter of 2020, what would happen to the WWE Network? What content would go? What content would stay? Would pricing points change? Would a tiered system that was rumored to be unveiled in January finally come to fruition?
