Why WWE is Running a 2 Hour 'Mania Pre-Show

According to PWInsider.com, WWE is running a two hour WrestleMania pre-show in order to get people to sign up for the WWE Network to watch 'Mania.

The first hour of the pre-show, as we noted yesterday, will be broadcast from 5-6pm EST on the WWE website, with the 6-7pm portion of the pre-show airing on the WWE Network.
