It looks as if the WWE Network could be undergoing a major overhaul with the company doing market research to switch up the format, and it could include content from TNA and Ring of Honor.

Based on the survey that has been sent out, the Network could be moving to a tier-based system.


Although it’s not confirmed, WrestlingNews.co are claiming that the WWE could be changing to a four-tiered system which means there will also be free access to the Network.

The free tier includes video clips limited to five minutes including the video archives. However, the catch is you are only able to watch five hours’ worth of content per month, and it includes all of the commercials.

While this plan is available on every device, the company won’t be making any pay-per-views, NXT or any other original in-ring content, such as the Cruiserweight Classic, available to free users.

The first paid tier available will apparently cost $4.99 per month and includes the big four events in the Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Survivor Series. NXT won’t be available on the live stream, but it will be available on-demand instead.

The commercials will be limited, and this plan will only be available on phones and tablets.

The current plan we all use right now will remain at $9.99 per month, and the content will also remain the same. Although, a few more upgrades are available, such as limited commercials and the fact it will be accessible on any device.

The interesting thing to note is something you can see in the image below thanks to mike10dude on Reddit, suggesting the WWE could be having the Cruiserweight Classic as a weekly show, rather than a yearly tournament.

The final plan could cost users $14.99 per month, which includes everything above, plus more.


There won’t be any commercials; fans may also receive perks such as early access to tickets, second screen content, invites to VIP meet-ups as well as voting on the Hall of Fame, and more.

Again, the eye-catching thing included in the image that this plan gets you access to independent wrestling content, such as TNA and Ring of Honor.

We all know by now that Vince McMahon wants to purchase the TNA library which would then see Billy Corgan take control of the company and rebrand it.

Dave Meltzer has claimed that they are also in talks with Ring of Honor to show their content online.

Fans of the UFC will know that this is similar to the UFC Fight Pass that’s available, where they air live events from numerous promotions on the streaming service to great success.

Is a new format a good idea by the WWE? Have YOUR say in the comments section below.
