The account already has 1,165 followers, and the following is a sample Tweet from the account:

Latest Reader Issues & WWE Statement Regarding Network

The following are today's WZ reader emails regarding issues with the WWE Network. Below the emails is WWE's latest statement regarding the problems, and it was issued last night:

Just wanted to mention you guys, that I have been having issues playing the network on my Apple TV. It kept buffering or loading throughout the day yesterday. Although at night, it got better I managed to pursue two ppvs without it doing that issue. It's not consistent with the really older stuff like WCW stuff. I haven't tried today so will see, just wanted to contribute my issues.

-Roel Santos

Still can't even log onto the network. It's says my user and pw aren't recognized.

-Cole Huffman

I just tried in the morning and still isn't working. It's working on my phone.

-Thomas Watkins

I am sure you have heard a lot by now, but WWE has NOT fixed their issues as they had said.  There are many that still cannot view any PPVs or other shows, besides those that are on their "schedule".  Even then, not all play.  I waited about 45 mins on the phone for tech support.  I got one lady who was the first "tech" to help.  She couldn't do anything, so she transferred me to their "Tier 2" tech support.  45 mins of hearing music, with a voice every 10 secs saying "Your call is important to us.  Please stay on the line"….I never got to Tier 2.  The music suddenly stopped for a minute and then it hung up on me.  So, just letting you know, their promised 6pm for sure deadline today to be fixed, never happened.  I was even told that Monday night, that it'd be up and running at 6pm. Nope.
