Getting on ITV or one of the other free to air channels in the UK would be a great move for the WWE. They must lose a lot of potential viewers due to mainly being on Sky Sports, particularly kids.

When I was a kid, WWE was on Sky, meaning I stopped watching for a while because my Dad decided to get rid of Sky. That is still going to be the case for many potential fans. Hell, if it wasn't for the occassional football match and the fact my wife wastes money on the bloody movie channels I don't know if I would continue to pay for Sky these days.

ITV pulled in a million viewers just for a special of WOS, many times what the WWE gets on any individual weeks. Each lost potential viewer these days is also a potential lost Network subscriber, as well as lost revenue from ticket and merch sales.

If WWE did get a show, there is a wealth of talent here to create a pretty decent roster. I know they had a few of them at their recent try outs so pretty certain WWE are well aware of this as well.

Did hope there was a chance of a second UK tournament (or at least some kind of follow on) but guessing we might have heard about this by now.
