WWE has issued a statement touting the fact that a record number of households watched Wrestlemania 30 this year. That total comes from both the WWE Network and traditional pay per view buys. One of the reasons why Vince McMahon wanted to launch the online service was to draw in more people for the pay per view with the lower monthly pricing.

Vince McMahon
Since the company was not exactly pleased with the amount of subscribers that have already signed up, Vince McMahon and company are offering another free trial for the WWE Network.

Vince McMahon
Since all the important monthly shows have been moved to the WWE Network, Vince McMahon and company have decided that they will no longer use the term "pay per view". Instead, WWE will be calling them "special events". PPV buy rate is no longer a vital thing for the company because they can now tell investors that the business has shifted to the WWE Network.

Vince McMahon
Earlier this week, Vince McMahon and company revealed that they had fewer than 700,000 subscribers for the WWE Network. Those numbers were lower than what investors expected, so many of them abandoned the company. That caused WWE stocks to plummets. Since Monday, the drop has been approximately 21%, as people do not feel as confident in the company now.

Sting
Even though he did not show up at Wrestlemania 30 or the following Monday Night Raw, things between Sting and WWE are not over and done with. There are many backstage that believe that management will still continue to negotiate with Sting, as they feel that he can be a valuable marketing asset for the WCW library that they currently air on the WWE Network.

Vince McMahon
Strategically, there are some concerns backstage in WWE on how Vince McMahon and the company would handle the Wrestlemania 30 replay rates. While it would make sense to appease WWE Network subscribers by making it readily available, there are those that are concerned that it might have an adverse effect on Wrestlemania 30 DVD and Blu Ray sales.

Vince McMahon
Since the monthly price for the WWE Network is so low, Vince McMahon and company are expecting a lot fewer people to look for Wrestlemania 30 download links online this year. The hope is that fans will simply just purchase the WWE Network and watch Wrestlemania 30 through there instead. Pay per view downloads have been a problem for the company for quite some time now.

Vince McMahon
When the company gave away free trials of the WWE Network, there were a lot of concerns because of the amount of technical issues that were being reported. Vince McMahon put an emphasis on resolving those issues before Wrestlemania 30. Considering how smooth things went this past weekend, the CEO has to be quite pleased with the efforts of the technology side of the company.

Vince McMahon
As promised, Vince McMahon revealed the amount of subscribers that the WWE Network has amassed. After just six weeks of being launched, the online service has garnered 667,287 subscribers. WWE set a goal of acquiring a million subscribers for the Network before the end of 2014, and it looks like the company is well on their way of accomplishing that.

Vince McMahon
For years, buyrate was always an indicator of how successful a pay per view was, but the WWE Network has now changed that. No longer does Vince McMahon and his company need to worry about that figure because it is not something that he needs to tout to investors. Instead, WWE can tell shareholders that the customers have shifted to the online service instead.
April 7, 2014
Vince McMahon
Since the pay per view game has now been changed thanks to the arrival of the WWE Network, Vince McMahon and his staff will be keeping a close eye to see just how many fans attempt to watch Wrestlemania 30 again throughout the next few weeks. The focus will be on seeing how many fans look for the full show instead of just clips.
April 7, 2014
Vince McMahon
Since they have now launched his WWE Network, Vince McMahon and company are keeping a close eye on the Wrestlemania 30 stream activities today. WWE wants to know if the low monthly cost of their online service is enough to curb the amount of people who go online to look for free streams of Wrestlemania 30 to watch.
April 6, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Depending on how well the show draws in the audience, there might be a second season of Legends House on the WWE Network. If it were to happen, then Hulk Hogan becomes a candidate to become the star of the show. Management wants to keep on using him after Wrestlemania 30 since he is under contract, so several ideas are being discussed currently.

Vince McMahon
Despite convincing a lot of fans to pay a monthly fee to watch pay per view events on the WWE Network, Vince McMahon and company are still concerned about fans going online to find a Wrestlemania 30 live stream to watch. The company believes that a lot of WWE fans will still resort to live streams to watch Wrestlemania this Sunday.

Jerry Lawler
While the company already owns much of the coveted tape libraries over the last couple of decades, WWE is looking to finalize a deal to purchase the Memphis area footage from Jerry Lawler. Some of the best wrestlers and moments went through that territory back during the 1980s, and those segments would be great additions to the WWE Network.
April 3, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Millions of fans are rooting for him to receive his big moment at Wrestlemania 30, and it looks like Daniel Bryan might actually be given that opportunity by WWE, as the company has a camera crew following Bryan around this week. A special feature will be airing on the WWE Network next week, which has heated up rumors about him walking away as the champion on Sunday.

Jim Ross
"There's nothing unresolved. My relationship with WWE is exactly what we want it to be. I'm staying very busy and doing something for WWE Network on an ongoing basis would be challenging. They've moved on and so have I with no regrets." - Jim Ross on his backstage heat with Vince McMahon and WWE

Jim Ross
"I am a big fan of Jim Ross, but disagree with him and others about CM Punk or anyone else needing to honor their contract.
