We have a 24 hour wrestling channel here in Japan. It's called Samurai TV. They actually show Japanese, Mexican, English, and American wrestling. Plus Pride, UFC, old school rasslin, and boxing. Only problem is, its so damn expensive. With the Yen rate so high it is about 50 bucks plus whatever your cable bill is.

Dear Friends
kind regards
The Wrestling TV channel is scheduled for March but a test is going to be done on Sky in December.
This is very interesting.........
I think that alot of the British wrestlers see this as an opportunity to perform on TV and of course people will have the pleasure of seeing Jake "the snake" Roberts on TV once again.
It could be really enterprising for the Wrestling industry as a whole..........I am sure that the WWE will be keeping a close eye on this tv channels success.
fingers crossed.
yours thankfully
John

It's a good idea, if they really intend to follow through with it. I'd rather see the cruisers on Raw and Smackdown, but if this is it... It's better than the nothing we've been getting so far.
