Why the WWE Network is Failing/How to Fix It

Cliff notes: It has nothing to do with the Network, which is great. It's that they need people to get interested in today's product, which is not great.

"The WWE can put up literally every single wrestling match that has ever taken place and it wouldn't matter. They need to get people to care about the matches that haven't happened yet."

I disagree with the notion that the Network is failing, but the problem is that Wall Street had such ridiculous expectations for it in the first place, which wasn't helped by the equally ridiculous "60 million WWE fans in the US" survey nonsense.  If the projections had been at least within reason, the stock probably wouldn't be in free fall right now, I'd guess.
