WWE Working on Changes for 2016 Hall of Fame Ceremony, Chris Jericho’s WWE Network Success, NXT
– We noted before that WWE officials were not happy about this year’s Hall of Fame ceremony going long. For next year’s ceremony, officials will be working on steps to keep the ceremony to three hours, as originally planned.
– As noted, the April 4th WWE NXT live event in Orlando had around 350 fans in attendance. This event was sold out in advance with 250 to 300 tickets sold and then they had a number of fans standing for the show. NXT even had to turn fans away that night.
– Chris Jericho revealed last week that his live WWE Network podcast with John Cena was the third most-watched special in WWE Network history besides live pay-pr-view events. The first two most-watched special were Steve Austin’s interviews with Vince McMahon and Triple H, so Jericho’s interview didn’t beat those but did beat the WWE Hall of Fame ceremonies, all Takeover specials and last year’s Ultimate Warrior specials.
