WWE Network will launch its new Russian-language stream on 21st August.
The launch will coincide with WWE’s SummerSlam event that takes place in New York at 2am Moscow time. Following its debut, WWE says all pay-per-view events on WWE Network will be available in Russian moving forward.
“As we continue to place an emphasis on international growth, offering a customised version of SummerSlam to our fans in Russia was a priority,” said Michelle Wilson, WWE chief revenue and marketing officer.
“This is another step in our ongoing strategy to create localised WWE Network content for our fans around the world.”
WWE Network is available through connected devices such as Sony PlayStation, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku streaming devices as well as Smart TVs including Sony, Samsung and Panasonic.
