When the WWE Network launched, the first week saw their first live streaming efforts. The WWE post-show aired fine after “WWE Monday Night Raw” but the “WWE NXT: Arrival” broadcast froze up and many people missed the main event until replays went up later that night. According to PWS on March 15, the WWE Network “Wrestlemania 30” live stream should work fine by the time it airs.

The problem with the “WWE NXT: Arrival” live stream was that it froze up on occasion and at one point towards the last quarter of the show, it kicked viewers out and to the log in screen. When logging back in, the viewers were taken back to where they were booted and then it would kick them out again.

It was distressing because the lure for many fans was the pay-per-views being included in the package.

Since that time, the WWE has made the decision to make “WWE Main Event” a live stream show on Tuesday nights when it is recorded. That is so the WWE can properly work out the glitches and fix the problems before the biggest event of the year takes place.

According to the WWE, they have “put in place significant quality assurances. These steps include increased capacity to handle high volumes of transactions, logins, and concurrent live streams, daily ‘stress’ testing of all systems over an extended period, and the addition of technology experts to review our plan and procedures.”

At the end, the WWE said they are confident the WWE Network will be ready for “Wrestlemania 30” on April 6.
