WWE News: WWE addressed DirecTV and Dish Network not carrying the Extreme Rules pay-per-view
WWE noted during Raw that DirecTV and Dish Network will not be carrying Sunday's Extreme Rules pay-per-view. The broadcast team made the announcement and encouraged viewers to order WWE Network, and crawlers were run delivering a similar message at different times during the show.
Powell's POV: WWE handled this well. They didn't take cheap shots at the satellite companies, but they did use the situation to direct viewers to WWE Network. If anything, I'm surprised they didn't drive this message home more than they did.
