– While most wrestling fans would not consider Virgil a legend, according to WWE, he is.
Topps’ WWE 2015 trading card set features a legends category and Virgil is among those featured. Also included in the set are Bret Hart, Jimmy Hart, Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Sting, Pat Patterson, Ric Flair, Bruno Sammartino, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and Gerald Brisco.
– One notable complaint from WWE Network subscribers is the lack of old footage being rolled out. According to F4WOnline.com, one major reason that WWE doesn’t add a ton of classic footage on a regular basis is because “almost nobody watches it.”
The most popular programs on the WWE Network are the specials and NXT. The most watched shows this past week were the WWE 24 episode on Roman Reigns and Chris Jericho’s chat with Stephanie McMahon. Jerry Springer Too Hot For TV and Tough Enough episodes from 2011 have also drawn strong viewer interest.
