WXW Say They Are Still An Independent Wrestling Promotion Despite Being On The WWE Network
Two of their events were added to the network over the weekend...
On Saturday, content from independent wrestling promotions PROGRESS Wrestling, wXw, ICW and EVOLVE was added to the WWE Network. The three European promotions all have working relationships with WWE, while the wrestling behemoth recently acquired EVOLVE and it's tape library.
As part of the content drop wXw Femme Fatales 2019 and wXw AMBITION 11 were made available to fans. Despite this, the German promotion has reiterated that it is still an independent wrestling company and no other company can purchase them without their consent.
wXw wrote: "15 years ago we were ecstatic drawing more than 200 fans twice a year. Today more than 1,66 million wrestling fans from 186 countries are able to watch wXw events as part of their excisting subscription. This is exciting to us. We'd like to thank all our wrestlers and staff members over the years who have worked on growing wXw to what it is today. We'd like to thank all our fans who have championed us.
"We would like to address 3 of the most frequent questions / rumors and put this our very clearly:
"(1) There are no changes to #wXwNOW at this time. wXwNOW hosts over 1,500 hours of wXw content. http://wXwNOW.com
"(2) WWE has already confirmed that today's uploads are the first of more content to come. It is not our position to divulge on when and what is released on the WWE Network.
"(3) wXw is and will remain an independent wrestling promotion. The ownership structure of our companies remains unchanged. No other company owns us, no other company can purchase us without our consent. All rumors/speculations regarding this are 100% wrong."
