Hey, Waypoint is a progressive site and cares about business practices of our favorite capitalistic entertainment enterprises so thought I’d bring up the recent situation happening with the WWE in the UK. I recommend reading this https://www.voicesofwrestling.com/2018/12/03/new-information-on-nxt-uk-deals-wwe-network-additions-tiers/
What they are doing is signing up a whole lot of European talent to deals that give the WWE a whole lot of control on what they can do. WWE has been stockpiling talent for the past 5 or so years in a big way and now they essentially have control of an entire scene that was thriving after being in the dark for so long. With WWE having the ability to purchase the two biggest UK promotions at any time means they could clear the way for their NXT UK brand which hasn’t taken off the way they expected. Presumably because they are accessible elsewhere.
So hey, curious of your thoughts on the WWE pretty much enforcing an iron grip on continually growing area for wrestling.
