“This is something I wanted to happen for a long time, I think this is the perfect opportunity for it, a studio show for us, you know it kind of because of the sports entertainment aspect of it it’s an analysis show where you’re talking about the athletic component of it, it’s also an entertainment where you’re talking about where things are going and the storylines and the characters and all of it. This is going to be one of those shows, where, if you’re a WWE fan, across the board, this is the show you can’t miss, because it’s going to talk about everything you love in a way that you can’t get any place else… and to take people into people deeper into personal lives and the day to days of what goes on behind the scenes to being a WWE superstar and everything that goes with it, that success, that failure. that heartbreak, that sorrow, that elation, of WrestleMania moments, all of it, to see that all take place here, but in a way that’s never been shown before, I can’t wait for this.”
