What’s the deal?
According to Pwinsider.com, at this time there some confusion in regards to Dish Network carrying WWE PPV going forward. The Extreme Rules show is currently not listed on Dish Network's upcoming PPV events section of their website, it's not listed on the main page, and it's not listed in the wrestling section of the site. Calls by subscribers to Dish have been made, and Dish has told customers that PPV listed internally; but when asked why it wasn't listed as available to order to their subscribers, they did not give an answer and said to call back tomorrow.
Pwinsider.com reached out to WWE about the situation, but have not been given a response.
With the launch of the WWE Network, there has been concern among PPV providers about WWE offering the same content cheaper on The Network then the contractually agreed upon price point. That has led to providers discussing possibly dropping WWE PPV moving forward.
