While a lot of fans are under the assumption that there will be a huge number of international subscribers for the WWE Network, the latest financial reports tell an entirely different story.

Since 3,000 of those are domestic, that means that only 28,000 subscribers signed on from 170 different countries. It's a positive, but not nearly what was needed to get to the 1 million subscribers mark that Vince McMahon desperately wants.
