Those of you who watch WWE pay-per-views by “Blast Area” locations, where sport bars pay a fee to broadcast the event. I would advise for you to check and make sure the ECW One Night Stand PPV is being carried, several readers are emailing saying that not all locations will be showing the show.
On the TV Week website features an article regarding the $8 million campaign that The USA Network has planned to promote the return of WWE, among other programs. This is the company’s first branding strategy since they debuted in 1980.
WWE will be releasing a Greatest Wrestling Stars of the 80’s triple disc DVD. The DVD features matches such as, Ricky Steamboat vs. Randy Savage from WrestleMania III, Jerry Lawler vs. Kerry Von Erich from the AWA Superclash PPV, Hulk Hogan & Mr. T vs. Roddy Piper & Paul Orndorff in the first WrestleMania main event.
