How Much WWE Is Giving Up with Ion, WWE Dropping Another Term, Vickie Guerrero’s Departure



- As noted, WWE Main Event on Ion is no more as the contract expired and the show will be airing exclusively on the WWE Network now. The lack of renewal doesn’t mean a lot because the $100,000 (ballpark figure) per week WWE was getting for the show wasn’t as important to their bottom line, at a time where they expect profits to rise greatly from the RAW and SmackDown TV rights and the Network.

– WWE is dropping the term “pay-per-view.” From now on, the monthly Sunday shows are being called “special events.”

– There is no heat on Vickie Guerrero for finishing up with WWE this past week. She just wanted to move into the regular world.

    When I first read this I thought how ridiculous that sounds but people who have the Network don’t have to pay for ppv’s, so I guess they’re not really ppv’s.

    From wrestling ppv’s to sports entertainment special events.. Smh that does sound ridiculous tho.

    Next thing you know, they’ll be changing the names of Raw & Smackdown to something more PG rated
