EXCLUSIVE WRESTLING AREA: VIACOM (MTV) is also interested in WWE?
Time is hectic, for a few weeks now we have “only” been talking about WWE’s television rights in Italy. As reported repeatedly, WWE would not have renewed Sky Italia’s contract after more than fifteen years, and with great confidence, Discovery Italia will be the home of the Stamford Association from July.
Given the many questions we are asked on the subject and the great response that Italian web wrestling is gaining, which our editor-in-chief Marco Macrì has noticed today, we would like to inform you a fairly important background.
As far as is known, in addition to Discovery Italia, WWE has also had contacts with ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks and the parent company of the MTV channel in recent months. For the American company, she was very interested in WWE rights.
Despite this interest and perhaps even a negotiating principle, we still confirm what seems to be the safest and almost official news in Italy since July. WWE programs will be part of Discovery Italia.
