Rumors of WWE Increasing the Price of WWE Network Subscriptions Debunked

Rumors of WWE increasing the price of WWE Network subscriptions from $9.99 to $10.99 going forward were recently debunked by PWInsider.

PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that he was told after recently speaking to several WWE officials that the company is not increasing the price of Network subscriptions by an extra dollar next month.

Subscription prices are increasing in Australia, but that is reportedly not due to WWE themselves but due to new Australian sales tax laws on digital goods.
