It appears that the WWE Network is looking to expand its roster of shows according to a recent newsletter survey.
The survey was sent to certain subscribers, asking their opinion on a variety of new show propositions (via PW Insider). What sticks out most about the list is the sheer number of options here, so while most of them will go unused, it would be hard to imagine not seeing at least a few of these pop up on the Network at some point.
Let's hit a few of the highlights. Extreme Eats, which features Tommy Dreamer and Bubba Ray Dudley would be like a WWE version of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, and could be a great guilty pleasure. The Third Wheel is weird enough to work, where two WWE fans go on a blind date and are surprised by a random superstar.
I would love to see WWE Game Night, which already exists as a Youtube program hosted by most of the crew from Xavier Wood's Up Up Down Down, make it to a featured program on the network, and WWE Investigates could make for some riveting TV, akin to a 60 Minutes style show.
That WWE Roast of John Cena really needs to happen, and while that WWE Promo Battle sounds fun, WWE probably should avoid Taz for awhile if they go through with it. He evidently gets pretty pissed about it.
Here are the official descriptions for the shows.
