Update: WWE Still Planning on Launching Network; Possible Release Date in 2014

Mike Killam

According to reports, WWE is still planning on moving forward with the WWE Network, and as of right now people within the company are tentatively working towards a launch date of quarter one, 2014. Dave Scherer of PWInsider spoke with one source that claims a release date of February 24th, although we cannot yet confirm that information. Obviously if WWE were going to launch the highly anticipated network in early 2014, they would love to do so before WrestleMania XXX in April. 

As we reported earlier this week, WWE was seeking a Supervising Producer for the network, which would indicate the Network is definitely still in progress. As of the WWE conference call in August, plans were still up in the air, with "all options" open moving forward. They have already shot multiple series with the intention of releasing them on the WWE Network. Total Divas was among the original ideas, but obviously that was released on E! to get the show out sooner. In 2012 they recorded a reality series called "Legends House" that features Roddy Piper, Jim Duggan, Pat Patterson, Tony Atlas, and other legends; the show has yet to find a home.
