During tonight's broadcast of WWE Main Event on the WWE Network, it was announced that next week the Network would feature a "Santino Marella Royal Rumble Lottery Special."

So, why is Main Event not airing?

Sources indicate that with the official launch of the WWE Network in Ireland and Great Britain this Monday, it places the company into a situation where they are unable to broadcast Main Event into those countries due to an existing deal with Sky for that series.

Since WWE Network cannot currently geotag programming for certain regions and block the series in the UK, we are told the company instead pulled Main Event until something is worked out.

As far as when Main Event may return to the WWE Network, we have no current estimate on that.
