Why WWE is Airing Main Event on the Network

According to, WWE is running Main Event live on the WWE Network this week to test out the live stream following the issues they encountered during the NXT Arrival special. The decision to air Main Event live this week is a one-off deal, and will not be a permanent schedule change.

TNA Loses Germany Deal, New One in the Works?

Thanks to Himanshu Doiphode for sending in the following:

In episode 131 of yesterday Friday was Kai Blasberg, CEO of Tele 5, a guest and announced that from April 2014 a fringe sport will find their new home at Tele 5 that are not described by many people as a sport. This could be possibly or probably involve wrestling.

Since the current contract between TNA / IMPACT Wrestling and Sport 1 to 01 Expires in March 2014 and has so far apparently not extended, is now speculated that the shows from TNA / IMPACT Wrestling from April 2014 could possibly be broadcast there.

Alternatively, it would also be possible that the WWE could have with their shows there found a new home on German free TV. It is known that WWE shows were from 1989 to 1992 and also from 2003 for some years very successfully aired on Tele 5 before the WWE finally changed with their shows to DSF / Sport 1, where one was replaced last year by TNA Wrestling / IMPACT Wrestling.

It finally remains to be seen which fringe sport Kai Blasberg, CEO of Tele 5, has meant by his statement.
