— WrestleMania 25 is already available on WWE’s WWE 24/7 Classics OnDemand service, just days after the big event aired on PPV. WWE 24/7 is available on most cable and satellite providers for a monthly fee which is actually cheaper than ordering the PPV replay. The service features the fan-favorite ‘Monday Night War’ features, which shows old head-to-head episodes of RAW and Nitro, and is currently airing episodes from the end of 1997 right before WCW Starrcade.
— The following is the official preview for ESPN’s E:60 for this coming Tuesday, April 14th at 7pm:
Lord of the Ring: Vince McMahon
Famed wrestling promoter Vince McMahon tells E:60 correspondent Jeremy Schaap about being physically abused as a child, about being reunited with his birth father at age 12, and how he changed his name from Vinnie Lupton back to Vince McMahon.
He also talks frankly about the death of wrestler Chris Benoit, who committed suicide after killing his wife and their seven-year-old son. Schaap also takes a backstage tour with McMahon’s daughter Stephanie, and meets some of the WWE’s biggest stars, including John Cena, Big Show, Shawn Michaels, as well as the legendary Hulk Hogan.
WWE also gave ESPN cameras full access to a creative meeting to see how the process works.
