Listen son, you need a lesson in quality over quantity. Look at pagi's post count to join date, then look at yours. When pagi makes a post, everyone knows it will be big. It's kind of like a Rock appearance. In a lot of ways, pagi is the Rock of this board. You on the other hand, are more like the Funaki of this board.
This. I just don't see what they could put on it. What, Raws? And take them off the air? That's definitely not it (millions lost in advertisement money). What, they plan on putting Wrestlemania on there? Haha, $50m in lost PPV revenue would tell them no. What, put the "small" 8 PPVs on there for free? No, cuz it's not really a PPV, and it takes a lot of the hype away, which is what pro wrestling's about.
Really, I never thought this thing would launch, and it didn't haha. Now they're saying it will, I really don't know. I can't see days of WWE footage when all you need is just to watch Raw. I just don't think this is going to work.

My guess as to the scheduling:
- Old Raw/SD/PPV's edited to an almost unwatchable level and De-Benoit'ed
- MAYBE a free PPV (one of the filler PPV's of course)
- Raw/SD/Total Divas on delay (expect day-long marathons of TD)
- A shit-ton of Afterburn/Top 10/Best Of List-esque shows
- Should be some quality On-Demand stuff though.
I like the idea behind this to be honest, just because I'd love to rewatch old episodes of wrestling in order. Sure, I can do that through the glorious convenience of the internet, but where's the fun in that?! A bit of nostalgia thinking "Oh shit, Raw comes on in 5 minutes." Sit down on the couch and see Bret Hart or Steve Austin open the show.
They have enough older programming that would make me consider subscribing to the network, considering it's not a lot of money. Then again, they charge $55 for PPVs like Battleground, so I shouldn't get my hopes up.
Considering they own probably over a million hours of archive footage, I wouldn't be too concerned about content. And if they decide it needs original programming, I'd suggest a Tonight Show-style nightly thing hosted by Y2J, personally.
Of course, given my say, they'd relaunch WCW and air Nitro and Thunder live on the WWE Network.
