Backstage Concern Over WWE Network & The Company’s Future
WWE is currently looking to hire a producer for the WWE Network, with pay starting at $300,000 with benefits. While that may sound sweet, there is a lot of uncertainty in the TV industry about how well WWE’s network will do, and if it’s flops, the producer’s name could be tarnished within the industry.
Industry insiders believe the WWE Network’s best chance for success would be for WWE to buy an existing network with it’s own clearance already in place. WWE’s efforts to do that have not panned out so far. If WWE has to start their network from scratch it would be even more of an uphill battle.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that sources within WWE feel this new cable network will financially “make or break” the company.
