WWE Overload: Why Adding More Championship Titles Is an Epically Bad Idea (Opinion)

24 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Svod aside, the company’s recent roster split has helped another network — NBCUniversal’s USA — in TV ratings, mostly just by replacing a tape-delayed TV show with another live one. Unfortunately, it’s also continuing to water down the in-ring product. Also Read: Rey Mysterio Jr. »
