UK STATION SECURE WWF PPV RIGHTS

From Rajah (unconfirmed):

Channel 5 in the United Kingdom have secured the rights
to WWF Heat and several pay-per-view specials, EWN can
reveal. After being bombarded by Essential Wrestling's
army of UK readers Channel 5 says fans won't have to
PAY-per-view on their station: "Channel 5 have received
enough e-mails about WWF programming to convince them
that something has to be done to bring quality wrestling
entertainment to its fans," Channel 5 told us. "We are happy
to say that we have signed a 2 year contract with the WWF
to broadcast the UK's version of Heat... Backlash, Fullyloaded
/Invasion and Vengeance." The UK station also said they
hope to broadcast the Royal Rumble in 2003: "Due to BSKYB
signing to show the Royal Rumble and charging an unbelievable
price for the viewers, Channel 5 are in the final stages of
buying rights to show the Rumble."


Which is good news for us in Blighty, right? Channel 5 hopefully won't cut anything (they're fairly extreme anyway) and should have a better idea of what they're buying.

It does mean that they think that the same demographic that enjoys 1970s soft porn films starring Robin Aswkith, and "World's Scariest Police Chases" will also be a wrestling fan though, doesn't it?

Rock was great with the off-beat shenanigans ( Lance Storm) - bringing back the ROCK CAM was AWESOME. I think the last time he did it was Backlash '99. But the star here was Chris Jericho. By far, one of (if not THE BEST) promos in the WWF (IMO).
