The WWE Network’s launch was foiled by high demands that kept people from being able to subscribe to the service.
The WWE Network, a live stream service that caters to wrestling fans, kicked off on Monday to overloading servers. Major League Baseball Advanced Media was handling the launch of the streaming service, but it quickly let World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) know that it was being overloaded. WWE responded by posting a statement on its website that alerted users to the high demand and told them it was being worked on, reports Newsday.
