Can The WWE Network Handle WrestleMania 30 Without Crashing?

– The Motley Fool has an article about the WWE Network and they asked fans do you think the WWE Network could handle the WrestleMania traffic and not crash? WWE responded with:

“Notwithstanding the overwhelmingly positive response to WWE Network, we want to ensure subscribers have the highest-quality experience watching WrestleMania 30 and all our programming, and thus have put in place significant quality assurances. These steps include increased capacity to handle high volumes of transactions, logins, and concurrent live streams, daily ‘stress’ testing of all systems over an extended period, and the addition of technology experts to review our plan and procedures. We’re confident that we’ll be ready on Sunday, April 6.”

Andrews Take: They had issues with the Network when they aired NXT Arrival , but when airing Main Event on Tuesday it has been smooth sailing. Even with WrestleMania 30 being on PPV for thirty years they have problems. Expect problems with the Network for the biggest show of the year.
