WWE Network removes 30-day free trial, could return


With WWE finally rolling out a free tier for the WWE Network on Monday, the company has done away with their 30-day free trial for potential paying subscribers for now.

The news was first reported by PWInsider and later confirmed by our Dave Meltzer. Meltzer is also reporting that the availability of that free month could change at different times.

That opens the possibility that WWE could revive the free month for high traffic times like WrestleMania season which starts at the Royal Rumble and runs through their biggest event of the year.

The working idea is that the free version of the Network, which includes recent episodes of WWE programming, some historical PPVs and TakeOvers, highlight shows, documentaries and the new Raw Talk show, will be the tool to give any prospective buyer what they need in order to decide whether to subscribe.

WWE reported 476,000 free subscribers to 1.62 million paid subscribers for this year's WrestleMania event compared to 233,000 free and 1.76 million paid subscribers for the 2019 Mania, and 316,000 and 1.8 million paid subscribers in 2018.
