Another Network Reportedly Interested in WWE TV Rights
While WWE continues its TV rights negotiation process, one network that is said to be interested in the rights is WGN. Besides the USA Network, which of course secured the rights to Raw, WGN was the only other legitimate bidder for the TV rights back in 2008.
The belief is that WWE TV could help WGN expand its potential audience thus giving them the ability to charge cable systems more for carriage of their channel.
