When is the Netflix release date?
There’s no confirmed release date for The Big Show Show. At the time of writing the series has only just been announced so the show will definitely launch sometime in 2020.
Depending on the production we could see a release date as early as Spring 2020. A Summer release date is more likely as Netflix will be scheduling their line up of shows for next year.
Will The Big Show Show be available in my region?
According to what we know so far, The Big Show Show is going to be available worldwide.
Why isn’t The Big Show Show coming to the WWE Network?
The simplest answer to this is the difference in subscribers between the WWE Network and Netflix. Almost 150 million subscribers separate the respective networks. The WWE averaged 1.688 million subscribers in Q2 of 2019. As for Netflix, they exceeded 151 million subscribers in Q2. With Netflix’s far-reach across the world, it’s no wonder WWE Studios is working with Netflix on the Original.
While the WWE Network does produce its own content exclusive to the service, the content is aimed at specifically at wrestling fans. Whereas The Big Show Show may be aimed at wrestling fans to some degree, it will certainly be appealing for a wider audience and not just wrestling fans alone.
