— Eric Lewis wrote the following on WWE Network’s recent issues in
“Rogers has responded to some of the concerns about the WWE Net Pak
in Canada on their website. They said it is not meant to be the full network,
and there will be 30 to 40 hours of content available on demand on a regular
basis. They said Rogers is sponsoring an application to the CRTC to have the
full network in Canada at some point. They also said they’re working with other
TV providers to try to offer Net Pak across the country. All the info can be
seen by clicking here. Also, I asked a Rogers rep on Twitter about two problems
with the Net Pak: 1) The HD channel isn’t widescreen and programming is
“squished” to 4:3 (standard definition width) and 2) the guide isn’t accurate.
They said they’re working out the kinks and asked us to give them a week. So it
looks like Summerslam will not be available in proper HD via the Net Pak in
WWE NXT stars Corey Graves and Adrian Neville are scheduled to appear at
Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie, Florida for a St. Lucie Mets minor league
baseball game on August 22nd. Neville and Graves will be throwing out the first
pitch that night as well as doing give-aways & more.

SummerSlam event poster.
