WWE UK Network launch delayed at the last minute

WWE officially launched their Network in America back in February this year and after many delays it was officially going to be unveiled to the UK at 8pm on Monday November 3rd.

This was the thought that many of the WWE Universe who reside in the UK actually though, until the official WWE Network's twitter account Tweeted the following. 

UK fans have every right to be disillusioned

This was all WWE have said on the issue, but it leaves many WWE fans rather angry and disappointed because they waited until just thirty minutes before the actual launch time to announce it through Twitter.

There are many thoughts as to why WWE have delayed the launch over on British shores again, after they did so last month. One of these makes the most sense, as David Bixenspan from Bleacher Report made the assumption that this could be a way to delay the launch further so that it coincides with Liverpool Raw next week.

Missed opportunity

This would be the perfect opportunity for WWE to promote the network launch in the UK whilst actually being in the UK themselves. But if this was the case then why didn't WWE have this as the official date in the first place instead of having fans all ready to try out the network over here when it wasn't the actual plan. 

There also hasn't been any comment on when we can expect the Network to be launched instead we can only speculate and hope that Liverpool Raw next week is WWE's perfect opportunity to promote the network in the UK to the maximum and push up their number of subscribers, after what was thought to be a disappointing count last week.

As for right now, WWE offered the whole of November for free along with Survivor Series and now many fans are going to miss out on this if the launch doesn't happen, and they will have some disappointed fans to contend with in the audience next week, so it will be interesting to see how they deal with this.
