THEY SHOULD NOT GO FOR THE WWE NETWORK MODEL.
Don't abandon traditional PPV's. The WWE Network is losing a tone of money. They predicted by now to have 1.0 million subscribers, they only have 650,000 subscribers. The break-even point for the WWE Network is 1.5 million.
In the last 2 weeks the WWE has had to cutback approx. $20m from their budget, this includes:
Releasing 10 wrestlers
Releasing their head of creative
Cutting their production budget - removing pyro and other fancy entrances
All because they made a huge overestimation as to how many subscribers they would get.
