wXw Say They're Still An Independent Promotion Despite Their Content Being Featured On WWE Network

Germany’s wXw is clearing up some misconceptions as some of its content library gets added to WWE Network.

Taking to Twitter after some fans began to assume that they were now owned by WWE because some of their content library was being added 2 WWE Network in the first-run test of independent content on the network, wXw reflected on their journey and cleared up all misconceptions about any change in ownership.

15 years ago we were ecstatic drawing more than 200 fans twice a year. Today more than 1,66 million wrestling fans from 186 countries are able to watch wXw events as part of their excisting subscription. This is exciting to us.

We'd like to thank all our wrestlers and staff members over the years who have worked on growing wXw to what it is today. We'd like to thank all our fans who have championed us.

We would like to address 3 of the most frequent questions / rumors and put this our very clearly:

  1. There are no changes to #wXwNOW at this time. wXwNOW hosts over 1,500 hours of wXw content. http://wXwNOW.com
  2. WWE has already confirmed that today's uploads are the first of more content to come. It is not our position to divulge on when and what is released on the WWE Network. 
  3. wXw is and will remain an independent wrestling promotion. The ownership structure of our companies remains unchanged. No other company owns us, no other company can purchase us without our consent. All rumors/speculations regarding this are 100% wrong.

Other promotions added to the network include PROGRESS, EVOLVE, and ICW. You can learn more at this link.
