At this point, there are no plans for Cyber Sunday – or ECW’s December To Dismember PPV – to air in the UK., although things can always change. WWE’s contract with the parent company of Sky Sports calls for 8 PPV events a year and 6 more free specials on Sky 1. Their current contract only calls for 14 events a year. Cyber Sunday and the December To Dismember PPV go over that limit. Talks are still ongoing for a deal to be reached that would allow those shows to air in the UK.
John Cena’s national ad for “Subway” will start airing in February and it could give a lot of exposure. Although, when “Macho Man” Randy Savage filmed commercials for Slim Jims in the 1990s, his Q rating was high among non-fans more for Slim Jims than from his wrestling.
