Given their focus on wrestling I can really believe that this is true.
Syfy is an awful channel. They start off good. But went downhill very fast. They keep the shows that are awful like Ghost Hunters
and cancel anything that's any good. Most movies they run are not-scifi, but poor F-Grade horror films.
