GFW Messes Up Royally With Global Wrestling Network “Launch”
Yesterday, we reported that GFW had launched their Global Wrestling Network and gave all the pertinent details on the streaming service. Well, in normal Global Force/Anthem fashion, the company screwed the pooch with the “launch”.
Turns out, it wasn’t really a launch at all. GFW mistakenly made the site live as they were working on the infrastructure of the service. When the news started to spread that the service had launched and that people could watch everything contained on the site for free, they shut the whole thing down.
What happened yesterday was never meant to be a public launch of the site, but GFW failed to put it behind a wall where it couldn’t be accessed by the public. They are preparing to launch the service, though, and we will keep everyone updated on when the real, purposeful launch of GWN happens.
