    Cool New Show - WWE Main Event

    according to wrestlinginc.com




    STAMFORD, Conn., June 25, 2012 - WWE (NYSE: WWE) and ION Television today announced a new weekly one-hour original series airing on Wednesday nights at 8/7C. WWE Main Event will debut on October 3, 2012, and feature WWE Superstars and Divas from the rosters of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown. The new show will be available in 100 million U.S. television households on ION Television, a top-rated general entertainment network that features a broad mix of critically acclaimed series, movies and original programming.

    "ION Television is delighted to begin a new partnership with such a successful and well-recognized franchise as WWE," said Brandon Burgess, CEO, ION Media Networks. "As a general entertainment network with a solid foundation, WWE Main Event is a great addition to our lineup that features something for everyone. We look forward to introducing our ION audience to all of the excitement and drama WWE has to offer as well as welcoming a passionate new fan base to the network."

    "WWE looks forward to this new partnership with ION Television," said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman and CEO. "We are excited about producing this new television show, WWE Main Event, and bringing our fans to ION Television every Wednesday."

    WWE Main Event will feature in-ring action and fit seamlessly in storylines from Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown, making Wednesday night appointment viewing for fans. The new series will offer a big arena experience with live audiences like current WWE weekly programs.

    Monday - Raw
    Tuesday - NXT
    Wednesday - Main Event
    Thursday - Superstars
    Friday - SmackDown
    Some Sundays - PPVs

    Are they trying to burn us out on WWE before we have a chance to subscribe to their network for a month and learn our lesson?

    NXT isn't actually airing on Tuesdays. It airs later in the week internationally, but doesn't air at all in the U.S. (not even on WWE.com anymore like it was on Wednesdays for a while). Of course, that could change by the time this new show is on air.

    surrender

    Pretty much. I already skip over a bulk of their product as it is.

    I'm living in the past.

    Still, it adds up to seven to ten hours a week? How much wrestling do people actually have time for?

    What will this "Main Event" show be about?

    Will it be used to build for PPV, like a video recap filled show?

    I do as well. But keep in kind that it would be the only hour of wrestling that week I wouldn't fast-forward through. I'd probably double the speed at which I jump over Sin Cara exhibitions to recover some of the time I lost.

    WWE already does PPV pre-shows and has a recap show in many markets called (I think) After Burn. They certainly don't need another one.

    Yeah, we have Bottom Line for Raw, Afterburn for Smackdown and The Week in WWE for both. We get a lot of WWE shows.

    I know NBC Universal has requested more WWE programming before...do they own ION too? I'm thinking this'll be like the TV version of Superstars that was on WGN Chicago a couple of years ago.

    How about they fix Raw first?

    I mean really, how many shows can you do when you barely string together quality episodes of your main show? Well, this is NBC huh?

    If anyone bothered to read the story y2jman posted, they'd see that this won't be a recap show. It'll be matches, much like Superstars is.

    And lets not forget RAW will be 3 hours soon. Oh well, there is no excuse now to not give time to the mid card, and the midcard titles


    Thanks JV for the artwork!!

    Hmm. They have a thin roster and then decide to add yet another new show.

    Yep that seems about right for WWE logic.

    The roster is only thin in terms of star power. In terms of depth of talent it's very high. This show will likely give guys that are lost between FCW and the main roster more chance to shine. Hunico, McIntyre, Bateman, Curtis, Kidd, Gabriel, the Usos, Percy, Yoshi, Trent, Maxine, Kaitlyn etc. will all benefit.

    Word is that the show will be a step up from Superstars, occasionally featuring top Superstars and some of the top storylines from RAW and SmackDown.

    WWE will likely be taping Main Event on Tuesday nights before SmackDown

    Said the same about Superstars. That lasted 6 weeks.

    Superstars and NXT? I didn't think either of those were on TV anymore. I didn't think they were even online shows at this point. Anyway, I'm looking forward to Main Event coming to wednesday nights. I've wished for the past couple of years that Smackdown would have been moved to wednesdays. There is nothing worth a damn on tv on wednesdays. So, I'll be giving Main Event a chance.

    Fortunately we will only have to wait a couple of months for Vince to stop caring, and the show will start to get good.

    Congratulations on the show btw!
