Prior to December 2019, every week WWE Network used to add a new bit of classic content. On some weeks it was just a Hidden Gem. Occasionally it was another year of All Star Wrestling or WWF Superstars.But over the last ten weeks or so, the only pre-2010 content that they have added is three additional months of 1989 Prime Time Wrestling. Other than that, we haven't seen anything else.

Has WWE made a decision to move away from classic, legacy content? If so, what is the reason? It cannot be cost, as these shows are essentially free to air as opposed to a new season of The Edge and Christian Show.

It’s one of the things that makes me go “hmmm” when I hear things like WWE moving their content to ESPN+ or Amazon Prime. New content that’s precooked (RAW, Smackdown, NXT, PPVs) still goes to the Network, but WWE holds any additional classic content back for whatever replaces the Network.

Yeah something is definitely happening with network concept. The premium tier, talk of selling PPVs to other platforms and executives leaving. Personality I think they'll combine both ideas. Premium tier for PPVs and streams, plus WM, Rumble etc sold to Amazon Prime and MITB, Extreme Rules etc sold to NBC Peacock.

For example :
WWE Network+ ($12.99, inc WWE Classics, extras )
WWE Classics ($6.99 per month)

Only the classic tier would offer a free month.

They really need to upload WCW Saturday Night 1990-1991/1994-1995 and WWF Prime Time from 1990-1991 because a huge chunk of those years are missing.
