Re: Date set for WWE Network launch

A channel loaded with Total Diva-ish bullshit reality show bullshit. No thanks.

An actual wrestling channel with PPVs and old school NWA, AWA, WCW, etc. 15 bucks a month would get me there.

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).

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.

I'll strongly consider it.

Rusev | Sami Zayn | Dean Ambrose | Alberto Del Rio | Jack Swagger
Timothy Thatcher | Chris Hero | Scott Dawson | Dash Wilder | Roderick Strong
Summer Rae | Charlotte | Carmella | Becky Lynch | Paige

Panthers - Red Sox - Nuggets - Mets

Can't wait 'til this ridiculous idea falls flat on its face.
You're a fucking wrestling company, come to terms with it, accept it and move on. Jesus christ.

Re: Date set for WWE Network launch

My guess as to the scheduling:
- Documentaries
- 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.

Re: Date set for WWE Network launch

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.

If they put the the past shows like Smokey Mountain/NWA/WCW/territories days, I would subscribe.

Re: Date set for WWE Network launch

I think it's still going to be a massive failure, just look at how they run WWE Studios, and they want to have several original shows going on at the same time, they're nuts.

EDIT: Though, I think it would be pretty freaking awesome if they had a sketch comedy show featuring some of the wrestlers from the past and present.

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.
