I just came upstairs to subscribe.

Are we the only country in the world that can't get it? If so, I can't see this being anything other than a Sky issue.

The Main Main Event of RAW tonight will take place EXCLUSIVELY on the WWE Network, with Rusev challenging for the United States Championship against Sheamus.

RAW tonight will apparently be a very wrestling heavy show, probably because John Cena is uncharacteristically absent according to their advertising.

Oh my friggin Jesus christ I cannot believe wwe and sky. What the hell are they playing at. There are so many possibilities as to what caused this launch cancellation. Wonder if we will ever really know what caused it.

The launch was called off at the last minute because of undisclosed "negotiations" with television partners.

You know it's coming...

The problem is Sky have paid a monumental amount of money for Main Event, Superstars, NXT, This Week In WWE, Vintage Collection & 12 PPV events. And they're all on the Network. It goes against everything Sky has ever stood for, but then they would have been well aware of this going into the latest negotiations. So unless WWE have royally strawberry floated up with some sort of exclusivity agreement in the contract, Sky haven't got a leg to stand on.

Another alternative is that Sky were offering very little for the WWE Network/channel & WWE turned it down. Sky then panicked at the last minute & have put in a new offer.

Or maybe someone like BT has stepped in, as they would have obviously been interested prior in the TV rights.

Just been confirmed that Sky are in fact legally challenging their contracts with WWE & the relationship between the 2 sides has soured.
