Matriarch of Hart family dies
World Wrestling Federation Entertainment is saddened to hear that Helen Hart -- the matriarch of the legendary Hart family -- died early Sunday. She was 76. According to Federation Superstars, Helen was an exceptionally warm and compassionate woman, and a good mother. "Even when I just met her right off the bat she was very, very, very, very friendly," said Chris Jericho. "She reminded me a lot of Owen Hart in that respect." The late Owen Hart, Helen's youngest son, was one of the most beloved superstars among his peers. Another of Helen's sons, Bret, is among the most decorated superstars in Federation history. The entire WWFE family sends its heartfelt condolences to the Hart family and all others affected by this loss.
World Wrestling Federation Entertainment Stops Offering Pay-Per-View Programming on DirecTV
Stamford, Conn., Oct. 15, 2001 - World Wrestling Federation Entertainment, Inc.(NYSE: WWF) today announced that it would no longer offer pay-per-view (PPV) programming on DirecTV, starting with the "No Mercy" pay-per-view event this Sunday, October 21, 2001.
WWFE and DirecTV have been in negotiations over a new contract, but have not been able to come to terms on the fundamental issue of what the revenue split should be. The prior contract expired in January 2001, and WWFE granted several extensions during that time while the parties continued to negotiate.
"As the leading content and revenue event provider in the pay-per-view industry, WWFE is simply asking for a fair split in the revenues," said Stuart Snyder, President and CEO of WWFE.
WWFE is encouraging its fans who are DirecTV subscribers to seek alternative ways to view "No Mercy" this Sunday, as well as future WWFE PPV programs.
