Blake’s Take: This is news that has really come out from left field. It’s no secret that PROGRESS Wrestling has a relationship with WWE. It was also rumored that the PROGRESS Wrestling library would be added to the WWE Network. Along with ICW and wXw when WWE will change their payment structure. What this means to that deal I don’t know. But I do know that Powerslam.TV has pulled a major coup here. Watch those subscription numbers fly!
