WWE recently sent out a survey asking fans about potential changes to the WWE Network. The survey lists 4 different plans for potential subscribers, and one of the plans mentions “TNA and Ring of Honor.”
Plan 1 would be free without commercials, but the amount of on demand content fans could watch with this plan would be 5 hours a month. The content would be available 24/7, however, under this plan fans would not be able to watch live pay-per-views, NXT or weekly episode of the CWC.
Plan 2 has a price point of $4.99 a month, and it would be similar to the free plan, but would allow fans to watch the big four (WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Royal Rumble, Survivor Series) pay-per-views live.
Plan 3 is set up with a price point of $9.99 and it would be the same plan that WWE currently offers.
Plan 4 has a price point of $14.99, and it would give fans access to everything on the WWE Network with no commercials. The interesting thing about Plan 4 is that it lists “Access to INDEPENDENT WRESTLING CONTENT such as TNA & Ring of Honor” as a feature. This plan would also allow fans to vote on the Hall of Fame, and it would give fans early access to ticket sales for WWE events.
It’s no big secret that WWE is interested in acquiring TNA’s tape library, and Dave Meltzer noted on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that he’s heard rumblings that WWE is talking with ROH. He noted that WWE would be interested in using ROH’s library for the network, but it’s not known if WWE would be interested in streaming live ROH events. It was also speculated that WWE may have interest in working out deals to stream content from other independent promotions such as WWN and EVOLVE.
The survey doesn’t necessarily mean any of this is going to happen, as WWE is just gauging interest at the moment. You can check out a screenshot of the survey below.
