extreme can you go, and how much extreme sport can even the most passionate fan
reminds me of what has happened to the sport er business of professional wrestling,
known as sports entertainment, in the land of the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).
love sports, and being entertained, and if your reading this, we suspect you do
for many, there's also life after sport. There's your own training, and perhaps
you have a range of interests and a circle of friends who have more going on than
sport ala "What's the next big WWE and UFC matches booked"? You get
a great time in many regards to be a fan, a sports writer, a sports promoter,
but just how saturated is the market, and is there a tipping point where the fan
has just seen too much over the years, or the decades in our case, where you can
always just wait for the next tour of Sydney, Melbourne or wherever?
rights are a key part of the business model for larger extreme sports outfits,
as is the case in the WWE. Did you know there's a lot of qualified speculation
that FOX will replace their UFC programming with that of WWE within the next year
or so. Don't just take our word for it, do your Google search and look up news
stories on this from all the majors such as Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Rolling
Stone, CBS (and FOX Sports)... of course. The picture is clear. Television stations,
traditional, subscriber, over the top and so on, are looking for major return
on investment, and if it means switching over a mainstream sport such as UFC's
version of MMA for WWE, so be it.
forget you also have the merchandise sales, and then there's the VIP meet and
greets, which many people feel are over priced, but as always, the market helps
decide the price point.
you ever wish sport went back to just being sport, with no business element involved?
Well, you wouldn't be alone, but if you want the big names, the internet news
and subscriber service et al, you are going to have to pay for it.
kids of all ages, be grateful that you have the choice of let's say an over abundance
of extreme sports and sports entertainment (professional wrestling) choices.

wrestling events? How about pricing on the WWE Network and UFC Fight Pass? Tell
us via our social media channels.
along as there is a lucrative market for extreme sports, in whatever micro niche
you look you can bet that super promoters such as UFC's Dana White, boxing's Floyd
'Money' Mayweather, WWE's Vince McMahon and Triple H, or even ECW's Paul Heyman
(now WWE and top banana of Heyman Hustle), are going to be keen to bring the action
to you. As Heyman is known to say, It's time to go extreme... that is, unless
you need a breather, and if that's the case head to be beach for some rest and
relaxation. Next thing there will be an extreme yoga - an add-on to beach yoga,
unless a switched on promoter already has that up and running next to beach volleyball
and all the usual beach lifestyle sports.
you at the events and don't forget to let us know your thoughts on the Wide World
