WWE is always one step ahead of its contemporaries when it comes to video contents. They have the exclusive video library that ranges to the widest extent. This is why WWE has the most number of followers in the Youtube platform. The launch of the WWE Network has extended the reach, further. It comes up with all the weekly programming as well as PPVs to entertain the fans on a daily basis.

Plus, the original contents are one of the best attractions of this platform. We can get to see each of the TV events to be hosted by either WCW or WWE over the years. It’s an exclusive facility that is rare in comparisons to the other streaming domains. This is why WWE Network is a critically acclaimed platform which WWE also promotes as the ‘award-winning network’.

WWE Network broadcasts the monthly PPV shows on a monthly subscription basis. There are four big-four events those remain constant for a calendar year. (Wrestlemania, Summerslam, Survivor Series and Royal Rumble) The other shows often get switched or replaced in case the officials feel so.

Wrestlingnews.co earlier reported that WWE has filed for a new trademark under the name of ‘Worlds Collide.’ The best part is that the trademark urge was granted hinting another PPV event in the future. Now we are receiving this as an additional WWE Network special in due course. Here’s what the description looked like for the trademark,

“Entertainment services, namely, a show about professional wrestling; entertainment services, namely, the production and exhibition of professional wrestling events rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network”

WWE Raw and Smackdown Live have been the top shows on the USA Network from the biggest pro-wrestling promotion of the world. WWE Network broadcasts the PPV programming only on selected nights. Also, they added shows like Mixed Match Challenge, NXT UK and 205 Live in recent times to increase the video library. Worlds Collide will be an addition to those in near future.
