There has been some recent buzz about WWE’s UK brand going forward having locked in some top names in the pro-wrestling business. With a part of the WWE Universe wondering if WWE was looking to replace the ever-struggling 205 Live brand with the UK Division, PWInsider recently shot cleared the air with a report claiming the UK Division will be a separate brand altogether.
As of the moment, WWE is in talks of getting a TV deal in the United Kingdom. Although the weekly show will be available on the WWE Network, the revenue are much higher with a traditional television deal. The likely consequence of the television deal would result in the show being made available on the WWE Network with geo-blocked feature and/or would be available on a delay in the UK for the sole reason of the television deal being the top priority.
205 Live will continue to run as a separate brand and will keep airing weekly shows. However the management seem to be in favor of a separate 205 Live taping in a location like Full Sail University with cost issues being involved.
