As we've noted multiple times here on the site, WWE has scheduled a press conference for Wed., Jan. 8, 2014, in Las Vegas, Nevada, to make a "groundbreaking announcement" that will "change WWE forever". It was speculated that the announcement would have to do with the long planned WWE Network.

There's no need to speculate any longer. It's official.

How it became official is interesting to note. WWE sent out an e-mail that spoiled the announcement in the title before pulling the link the e-mail made a click through. The title read: "WWE Event Reminder: WWE Network Announcement scheduled for Wednesday, January 8".

Whoops!

A press release was also sent out:

STAMFORD, Conn., January 7, 2014 - A groundbreaking WWE announcement will air LIVE on WWE.com tomorrow at 9:30 pm ET.

WWE Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Vince McMahon, Chief Revenue & Marketing Officer Michelle D.

The groundbreaking announcement will also be streamed live on the WWE App, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Google+, Pinterest and Pheed.
