WWE Network – Original Plans Revealed For Streaming Service

Last updated

WWE backstage interviewer and personality Scott Stanford recently appeared on The Launchcast podcast. Stanford discussed a number of topics during the show, including some of the ‘original’ plans for the WWE Network before it became a streaming service.

‘The WWE Network was originally supposed to be a TV network like YES Network or MSG” Scott Stanford began. “The powers that be decided to go with streaming. Had it been on television, we were talking about me doing a Scott Van Pelt type show, like a morning show.”

“All the bells and whistles studio show with the news of the day, bring in John Cena, all kinds of stuff” Stanford continued. “Once it became a more on-demand situation, the ideas changed and went out the window. That’s what I think would’ve happened, a SportsCenter-type scenario, but WWE. I still think it would be pretty cool.’
