Hopefully a sign that they're beginning to embrace other methods of delivery then cable.
No word on if AppleTV is supported but at least with the iPad, it's possible to Airplay it to your television (hopefully). I had cut been considering cutting back on cable for a while, so this is a nice change. I know you could purchase events online but you were limited to watching it on your computer from their site.
I know that it's a stretch but I'd love to see Raw or Smackdown get delivered this way, too - either through WWE.com or as a season pass in iTunes.
I think you are putting a lot of faith in a stable that for all intensive purposes is mostly cannon fodder right now. I do think Smackdown got screwed. While I agree Rey's injuries pose a problem, he is the face of Smackdown more then anyone else.
