Others may have e-mailed them, just thought I'd post the message I recieved

Dear Chris

Thank you for your email about WWE and please accept my apologies for the delay in responding.
Please allow me to explain our position regarding WWE events.

Our agreement with WWE for the four Sky Box Office events expired earlier this year and, despite some months of discussion with the WWE organisation, we have so far been unable to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement.

Whilst it is very disappointing for us all that we could not bring Armageddon to the UK fans, this does not affect the other wrestling programming that you receive from Sky. We will continue to show many hours of wrestling across both Sky One and Sky Sports, including Raw, Smackdown, Afterburn and Heat. In addition we will broadcast eight of the twelve special events on Sky Sports so you will receive all of this with the Sky World subscription will continue to be the UK home of WWE.

We hope to reach an agreement with WWE to show Royal Rumble, Vengeance, No Mercy and Armageddon in 2004 on Sky Box Office, and as soon as we have news we will let the fans know.

I hope this clarifies our position and may I thank you for your continued interest in Sky.

Kind regards

Caroline J Craigie

Wow, so that's the problem. That really sucks, and I hope they reach an agreement soon for all of you across the pond.

I really hope they work something out. I know what it's like to live overseas and not get WWE programming. And even if we did get it, it was 4 weeks late, it was on a chinese network, hosted by a fat chinese guy and the JR and King commentary was voiced over by said fat guy.
