Wrestlemania 30 is now in the books. I was one of the millions of people in the United States to watch the first PPV ever streamed through the WWE Network. Many critics and fans believed that WWE should have launched the network about a week earlier than they did in order to stress test the servers with the previous PPV, Elimination Chamber. However, the Stamford, Connecticut-based company believed in MLB.TV and their powerful collection of servers (MLB Network hosts WWE Network on their servers). The reviews seem to be mixed, so I'll give my personal take.
WWE's twitter feed, however, was a completely different story. There were many instances of people saying that the stream didn't work at all or was terrible quality. I contacted a few acquaintances of mine throughout the show to see how their stream was holding up. All said that there were no major issues. For the record, I'm running on a 30 Mbps / 5 Mbps connection.
It would seem that the jury is still out on how well the WWE Network held up. Either way, the company will have more than enough data and will hopefully rectify any issues, however large or small they are, before their next PPV.
Also, kudos to WWE for putting on what I thought to be one of the best Wrestlemanias I've ever seen.
