This week on BoredWrestlingFan Radio presented by WeGotDiscounts.com, Joe mocks fans who thought they’d get good, quality programming with Sami Zayn’s segment with Bobby Lashley’s “sisters” on RAW. We discuss the news that WWE has sold the SmackDown broadcast rights to FOX for $1 Billion. We discuss the history of shows that have switched networks and their survival rates – specifically sitcoms and animated programming – but also, to an extent, professional wrestling.
In the news, WWE extends PPV times, moving to a 6PM Kickoff show and a 7PM start time for non-“Big Four” PPV events. Meanwhile, with the move to FOX, word is that WWE will be booking more for television ratings than for Pay Per View/WWE Network numbers. News on CM Punk, John Morrison, and more. Tune in!
