Don't know how much you've been paying attention to WB Discovery/HBO Max's blood-letting, but it seems to spell a new approach in streaming that could affect pro wrestling (AEW, especially).
The past few years, the focus was on the number of subs and in streamers holding massive amounts of content.
Now it's more about profitability, and having content people are actually watching (shocking, right?)
WWE's relationship seems pretty darn solid with Comcast/Peacock, but what could this mean for AEW, which bought ROH ostensibly to have as much content as possible for a streamer? Is a streamer really going to spend millions to have the rights to old indie wrestling (when it's the old content on WWE Network that people aren't watching)?
Peacock is losing billions of dollars and only exists because Comcast adds it on for cable subscribers for free. And we still don’t know how much ROH sold for or what Tony’s endgame for it even is.
