WWE to live stream 'WWE Main Event' on the WWE Network

"WWE Main Event" tapes every Tuesday night and then airs on Ion every Wednesday night. However, PWS reported on March 3 that "WWE Main Event" will live stream every Tuesday night as it takes place from now through "Wrestlemania 30."

The reason that the WWE is doing this is very smart. They want to make sure that their live stream platform is perfect before they live stream "Wrestlemania 30," since that is the huge event that could make or break the WWE Network.

The first television show that the WWE live streamed was "WWE NXT: Arrival," an event that worked well for the first hour. However, at the start of the Xavier Woods vs. Tyler Breeze match, the WWE Network live stream started to glitch.

At least on the PlayStation 3, the live stream paused and then kicked viewers out to the main screen. Then, every time the user would try to get back in to the live stream, it would start at the beginning of that match and then boot them out again. After a bit, users were able to get in and fast forward to Shawn Michaels promo, but as soon as the main event started, it would boot the users out again.

Finally, when it finally worked, the entire live stream shut off when the next show started, meaning that people who started watching late were not able to watch the end of the show until the replay later in the night.

With the new live stream showings of "WWE Main Event," the WWE and MLB Network hope to have the bugs worked out for a perfect experience.
