Forget Schrödinger’s Cat, I have Schrödinger’s WWE Network Subscription

If you are familiar with the concept of Schrödinger’s catI just realized today that I have a textbook case of Schrödinger’s WWE network subscription.

Honestly, had WrestleMania fallen in April and not March, I would have saved myself the $$$ and let it expire for a month.

Poll: Who would be your WWE Legends’ House roommate?

The first season of WWE Legends’ House concluded with a reunion episode that aired this past Thursday. Outside of the live pay-per-view events, Legends’ House has been the most popular thing on the WWE network according to some reports.
