The WWE held their conference call today for financiers and talked about a number of subjects. According to prowrestling.com on Feb. 20, one of the big topics that came up was that the WWE was setting up a three hour block to compete directly with "TNA Impact Wrestling" on Thursday nights.
This will likely damage the ratings for TNA Impact Wrestling when it comes to watching the shows live. Since the WWE Network is streaming, fans of "Impact" can just DVR the show and return to watch it later while streaming the WWE live shows on Thursday nights instead.
The shows that the WWE will broadcast on the WWE Network on Thursday nights include "Legends House" at 8 p.m. EST, "NXT TV" at 9 p.m. EST and "WWE Superstars" at 10 p.m. EST.
"Legends House" is the reality show similar to "Big Brother" where former WWE stars and legends will live under one roof and drive each other crazy. Participants include Rowdy Roddy Piper, Mean Gene Okerlund, Hacksaw Jim Duggan and more. It debuts on April 10.
Of course, NXT Wrestling is the minor league system for the WWE where fans can see tomorrow's stars wrestling today. That show will kick off with a live episode the week the WWE Network launches and continue on weekly from there.
Finally, "WWE Superstars" is the B-show that used to air on WWE.com and will now move to its new home on the WWE Network on Feb. 27.
