WWE produced NXT ArRIVAL Thursday, which not only served as a showcase for its developmental talent, but also as the first live in-ring special on the WWE Network.

While the action in the ring was consistently good throughout the night, the live stream experienced some hiccups. The feed froze during the second half of the show and even took viewers back to prior portions of the program.

The issues were eventually resolved, but they lasted long enough for fans to notice and express their concerns via social media.

This prompted WWE to release a statememt via email to subcribers regarding the issues:

During tonight's live NXT ArRIVAL special, we unfortunately experienced technical difficulties, which are to be expected when launching a new digital network. We will work aggressively to solve these glitches and deliver quality service. The complete event will be available on-demand overnight.

The next major event on the WWE calendar is WrestleMania XXX, which will be offered as part of the subscription to the network. WWE hopes to resolve the issues before then so it does not disappoint potentially thousands of fans who will watch the event via the network.
