Vince McMahon must be having a happy Monday as news has hit the web of his newest venture entering its final stages of production.

WWE has been taking steps for a few years that would lead them to eventually having their very own television network.

WWE has an on-demand service through cable providers, but this would be WWE on a true 24/7 format once they launch.

It was reported that a website has been launched encouraging fans to lobby their television providers for the WWE network. The website is iwantwwenetwork.com.

I attempted to visit the site and was redirected to wwe.com every time so it is possible the site is being fixed at the moment.

WWE has also made their first official new show announcement through their website. Their first new show will be called WrestleMania Rewind.

The launch website also at one point had a countdown clock which was for the launch of the network, but it also coincides with WrestleMania on April 1st.

This would be a good idea for WWE to launch the network at the same time as their biggest show which gives them the most exposure in the industry.

The Rock's participation will give WWE that extra boost of media coverage that could help them with the release of the network.

One thing that WWE has yet to release is the cost structure for the network and whether or not the cost would include the monthly PPV events.

If WWE does this right then they should introduce several price points for people to choose from.

One idea would be to have three options; one with access to the network and all of the PPVs, another with the network and the big four PPVs and a third with just the network.

WWE will be making more announcements in the coming months so stay tuned.
