If the idiom “too much of a good thing” hold true the WWE certainly just experienced it, as demand for the professional wresting association’s subscription-based streaming program WWE Network left its technology partner MLB Advanced Media overwhelmed and unable to process orders, according to a report today Newsday.

According to a statement from WWE’s communications department earlier Monday, most orders from as early as 9 a.m. went unprocessed because MLBAM’s systems were “overwhelmed.”

The company posted a message to users on its website asking for patience in ordering their subscription.

“Please be patient if you’re ordering WWE Network as we’re experience extremely high demand,” the note said. “Your order will be processed as soon as possible.

Later in the day, orders became more easily processed, as a WWE spokesperson said, “Major League Baseball Advanced Media’s systems are now processing orders for WWE Network at WWE.com.”

The WWE announced the steaming venture during International CES 2014 last month in Las Vegas, with subscribers being able to access content online or through the WWE Network app for iOS, Andoid, Kindle Fire, Roku, Apple TV, PlayStation 3, PS4 and Xbox 360.

The Xbox One and some smart TVs will also give access to the app coming this summer.

Access runs subscribers $9.99 per month, which includes 24/7 streaming, 12 pay-per-view events including Wrestlemania, an on-demand library of past programs and matches, reality shows, documentaries, and original series.
