‘Dancing with the Stars’ is going to be a ‘great’ show for ‘WWE’ fans
In a move that’s sure to go down as the greatest moment in wrestling history, WWE has confirmed that the first “WWE Live” event will take place on March 16.
The event will be the culmination of a three-year partnership between WWE and MTV Networks that includes the “Wrestlemania” PPV, “The Undertaker Presents” special, and a host of other specials, including “The Undisputed Truth,” “Raw: The Most Popular Raw of All Time,” and “Wrestling with the Fates.”
“Wimbledon, the #1 men’s tennis event, is the perfect event to showcase our brand to an audience that is looking for more, as well as a show that will be an exciting night for fans who love our brand,” said Stephanie McMahon, senior vice president of creative and brand development for WWE.
The announcement comes as the network is set to release its “Wes Anderson: The Masterpiece Tour” on March 10.
“The live events will feature performances by a roster of superstars that will include the likes of Anderson, Kevin Nash, Roman Reigns, Kane, Sami Zayn, Cesaro, and more,” said WWE.
“Wwe is thrilled to continue our partnership with MTV Networks, which brings fans the chance to experience and see the world’s best wrestling talent in a whole new way.
Fans will be able to catch the show live on WWE Network, which will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.”
While “The Live” will be exclusively available on WWE.com and in select cities, fans will be welcome to watch the show on the WWE app for free in some markets.
The “WwF Live” live event is scheduled for a 3 p.m.
ET time slot on March 8.
Fans can register for the show through the WWE Network or online at WWE.tv.
For the first time, WWE is bringing the “Dancing With the Stars” game to WWE.
Fans who pre-register through the network’s app will receive a free copy of the upcoming “Dance With the Dragons” game on March 1.
“DLC,” the company’s new game mode, will also be available to watch live on the network.
“With a new “Dwight Howard: The Great American Story” coming in March, the world of WWE has never looked so good,” said Jason Rosen, president and CEO of WWE Network.
“As the network grows, we’re committed to adding new shows that are unique and fresh every day, so the WWE Live event will serve fans well.”
“The world of professional wrestling is a unique place,” said Brian Burke, WWE President and Chief Creative Officer.
“In 2017, we are proud to be partnering with MTV for the first-ever live event featuring professional wrestling.
We look forward to sharing this exciting new partnership with our fans.”
