The Wrestling Observer is reporting some new details regarding plans for the upcoming WWE television network. The network is one of the main reasons for the "WWE" re-branding move with the idea being that the company does not want its own network viewed as simply a "pro wrestling channel."
The current plan is to air new scripted programming in addition to back episodes and matches that the company has in its extensive back library. The new WWE network is also expected to air the show WWE can’t land TV deals for like NXT and Superstars. The YES Network continues to be a model channel which WWE is using as a template/example channel for its new network.
