EXCLUSIVE SPACEWRESTLING: WWE, Discovery Italy and the faded wedding in 2015
Nowadays, as it should be, the hottest topic in wrestling concerns WWE television rights in our country.
Yesterday, a highly authoritative source among the experts told our editor-in-chief Marco Macrì that in 2015, when Sky had to check whether it should be renewed or not, the Discovery Group was one step away from secure WWE TV rights.
According to the findings, Discovery was so interested in WWE in 2015 that it made a very important offer on an economic level. At that time, according to our source, thanks to the offer made, Discovery was certain that the television rights of the Stamford Association, which provided for the purchase of the entire package, would be taken with Raw and Smackdown on the NOVE channel and with the PPV on the DPlus platform , but in the end, as we all know, Sky Italia had the upper hand and won the contract extension.
After 5 years, it seems that this “marriage” can happen again, with the exception of last minute twists, which under these circumstances are never excluded and must always be taken into account. Of course, we just have to wait for the official press releases to put an end to the real soap opera.
