LEGENDS' HOUSE FINALE TONIGHT, NXT TAPING IN FLORIDA, WWE NETWORK PLANNING 'THEMED WEEKS' AND MORE WWE NEWS

By Mike Johnson on 2014-06-12 09:29:15
Batista and Eva Marie will be appearing at tonight's WWE NXT taping. They are filming 3-4 week's worth of shows to get ahead as have no tapings this summer until 7/31. They are off in August from Full Sail and then have taping dates scheduled for 9/11 and 9/25, one of which could end up being another live Network special.

The final episode of WWE Legends' House will air tonight on the WWE Network. Based on the commercials, they appear to be teasing that Pat Patterson will come out of the closet on the show and announce that he's gay. That's obviously been a well known fact amongst those in the business and wrestling fans but if Patterson wants to use the show as a platform to make that announcement, I am all for it and good for him. I've often felt his life story would make a hell of a book. If they play it up like the others had no clue, well, it is what it is. That said, I've really loved the show and encourage people to check it out. Beyond the original episodes which conclude tonight, WWE Network will run a "reunion" special, which was taped last year in Florida.

The WWE Network, based on how Ultimate Warrior Week was received, is looking at doing a number of themed-weeks in the future. The company sent out a survey to fans of their mailing list seeking feedback on themed-weeks for CM Punk, Christian, Alberto Del Rio, Lex Luger, Sting, Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, The Authority, The Kliq, Steve Austin, The Rock, The Hardy Boyz and Randy Savage.

Oddly enough, WWE's most recent survey sought out details on demographics of what shows are watched on the Network. One of the choices was replays of Total Divas, which has never been an option.

El Torito will have his debut WWE action figure in Mattel's WWE Series 42, which also features Natalya, Big Show, Sin Cara, Batista and Roman Reigns. They can be pre-ordered now from www.ringsidecollectibles.com.
