    I thought ION Television just showed crime shows and stuff like that.

    But anyway, WWE Main Event sounds like it gonna be a good show. I hope it'll last two hours.

    You know, speaking of new shows for WWE, whatever happened to the WWE Network thing? I haven't heard anything more about it for a while.

    It's in limbo. It's not to come out until next year, if at all.


    Only Dish and Comcast are interested and DirecTV and I forget the other one, are not interested at all, which means I get shafted again.

    They seem to have their hands in too many things.


    I don't think a Network is needed, but that's just me.
