From a CT PURA filing yesterday.
Effective January 1, 2012, WWE Classic Subscription On Demand service is being discontinued and the agreement to carry this programming will not be renewed. The WWE Classic Subscription will be removed from subscribers’ U-verse TV service at the end of the year. Some customers may see a $7.00 charge for this service on their January 2012 bill; however, AT&T will provide a credit for that amount in a subsequent bill cycle, and, as always, customers may call AT&T at 1.800.288.2020 if they have any questions.

well that answers the question about whether or not WWE Network will be a premium channel or not...they've gotta replace that $7/mth fee somewhere
No it doesn't. For example, if they can get it on the u200 tier at $0.20/subscriber they would bring in more money than they currently do as a $7/subscriber video on demand channel.

There are better qualified HD channels AT&T U-verse could add to their lineup, but I swear if they add either WWE or Longhorn (or even both!) and not bring back Hallmark and NHL or adding BBC America in HD, I'm dropping U-verse.

According to PWInsider , WWE will end their Classics on Demand service completely come January 1, 2012.
This practice is clearly being done to give strength to the WWE Network that will debut on cable systems on April 1, 2012, the same day as WrestleMania XXVIII. WWE has not made an official announcement to subscribers yet, but some cable providers have began informing their customers. Another article from PWInsider has revealed that AT&T has already sent out postcards to their WWE subscribers informing them of the cancellation.

Confirmed - I received one.
This makes sense, as some of the WWE Network's advertising teases a lot of the programming (e.g. the TBS Saturday WCW show which eventually became "WCW Saturday Night") that is on the OnDemand channel.
So, does this mean we get to spend the next three months speculating on what tier, if any, WWE Network will be on?
I for one already get U-200 and Sports, but if they put it on U-300, I have to think long and hard about whether it's worth the extra $15/month.
It may come down to two questions:
One - how much does Vince McMahon want to take in from U-Verse?
Two - how many U-Verse subscribers are there at each tier?
