WWE Main Event Debuts on Wednesday Night

By October 2, 2012

Follow me on:

WWE's newest television program, WWE Main Event, premieres on Wednesday night at 8:00 PM ET on ION Television. The first episode will feature the first-ever meeting between WWE Champion CM Punk and World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus.

According to wwe.com: "The hour-long program will feature in-ring action, commentary, exclusive behind-the-scenes content and continue to build on the events of Monday Night Raw, leading directly into Friday Night SmackDown, making Wednesday night appointment viewing for the WWE Universe."

I really hope that WWE keeps this promise for appointment viewing and doesn't pull what they did with WWE Superstars. That show also began with some promise but quickly became must-miss programming as it began to focus on the stars that don't shine bright enough to be regularly featured main event players on either Monday Night RAW or Friday Night SmackDown.

In other big WWE broadcasting news, the company has reached a deal with Hulu Plus where fans can watch unlimited viewings of Monday Night RAW, WWE SmackDown, WWE NXT, and WWE Superstars on multiple platforms a day after the shows air. This is the only way that fans can watch the revamped NXT as that show is neither broadcast nationally nor available on wwe.com. Hulu Plus costs $7.99 but the link below has information about getting a free week of the service for free.
