Thats a horrible idea, imo.
If they can drum up enough advert they might have a shot at lowering the monthly price. This has epic fail written all over it considering I highly doubt people will be throwing away that amount of money on top of monthly cable charges for pro wrestling. I also wonder how many cable companies will want to add this into their packages with such a niche fanbase to begin with unless its an add on to some sports package...and even then, fourty extra bucks a months just doesnt cut it.
I give Vince credit for trying for the brass ring, but this one has XFL written all over it. He will be pumping so much money into this he wont see a profit for
if not a decade. Unless of course he can get the next big thing to push him and his vision, and he doesnt have that yet, Cena included.
But, then again, he can say you get the PPV price and all this other content. The thing is nobody buys the PPV's anymore now that the internet has taken over. His best bet would be to be just internet and stream his product off his web site. Theres so much more money using that model to be made.
