What's the story?

WWE is all set to redefine the experience of its drama for the WWE Universe once again. WWE has announced its collaboration with NextVR in order to provide the fans with a new WWE experience.

In case you didn't know

NextVR is a leading technological enterprise launched in 2009 which provides live and on-demand virtual reality experience of events internationally. WWE has been testing with VR since 2015 and it looks like they've got some big plans that might develop after this partnership really takes off.

The heart of matter

For a better action loaded experience for the fans, WWE tied up with NextVR who will work collaboratively with WWE officials to produce quality experience content. The experience will feature a free 10-minute rundown of selected 2018 WWE events for the people.

Users will need to go through the NextVR app and select WWE channel in order to witness a brand new experience of entertainment. People having Samsung GearVR headset or Play Station VR can easily access the recap of the events through the NextVR app. The enterprise is scheduled to produce 6 VR experiences in 2018.

Speaking in an interview, David Cole, NextVR CEO said that the new experience is incredible and the WWE Universe is going to love it.
